Brian Hayes comments ignorant and reckless- Lynn Boylan MEP
Dublin Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has strongly condemned Brian Hayes commentary on the situation in Stormont.
Ms Boylan said:
“'Mr Hayes has decided that political point scoring is more important than trying to stabilise the fragile state of affairs in the north. For him to go on national radio and make wild, sweeping accusations based on nothing more than his own imagination shows a serious lack of judgement on the part of the Fine Gael MEP.
"I am well used to Brian and his attention seeking commentary but the crisis in the North is far too serious to be used as a political football and Brian Hayes should know that. Fine Gael may be political opponents of Sinn Féin but he cannot ignore the fact that as the governing party, they also have a responsibility as co-guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement.
“I would suggest Brian Hayes, go to the Gardaí if he has information of so called links to 'criminality' or wrongdoing and leave the commentary to politicians who take the gravity of the situation in the North seriously,” added the Sinn Féin MEP.
