McGuinness challenges Cameron on his partisan and pro-unionist approach
Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has challenged David Cameron on his partisan and pro-unionist approach.
Mr McGuinness said;
"The current crisis at Stormont has been created by the Tory government at Westminster and its dogmatic adherence to an agenda of austerity cuts.
"Last week I challenged Theresa Villiers to spell out the impact of the Tory government’s proposed £25bn in cuts to public services and welfare on people here. She refused point blank to do so.
"And despite the enormous challenges facing the political process David Cameron has refused to meet with me or to engage in any attempt to resolve the current difficulties.
"In stark contrast to this refusal, he rushed to meet with the leaders of both unionist parties to enlist their support for his on-going assault on public services and the most vulnerable.
"The source of the enormous crisis facing the Executive is the Tory cuts agenda. That crisis is compounded and deepened by the partisan and pro-unionist stance of David Cameron."
