Nesbitt's roadmap leads UUP into cul de sac - Murphy

8 September, 2015 - by Conor Murphy


Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has said leadership rather than stunt politics is required to get a resolution to the difficulties in the political process. And he said that UUP leader Mike Nesbitt’s so-called road map had already turned into a cul de sac.

Mr Murphy said; 

"Sinn Féin has entered this talks process in a problem-solving mode to achieve a deal for everyone in our society. This requires leadership from all the political parties and the two governments.

“It’s clear however from the off that UUP leader Mike Nesbitt is interested only in stunt politics in his electoral contest with the DUP.

"Already his roadmap forward has turned into a cul-de-sac at the first twist in the road as after excluding his party from government he has now excluded them from tomorrow’s talks. 

"For our part we are committed to achieving a resolution which will allow us to grow the economy, defend frontline public services and protect the most vulnerable."
