Sinn Féin - On Your Side

McDonnell’s comments smack of political opportunism

25 September, 2015 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has accused SDLP Alasdair McDonnell of exploiting the murders of Gerard Davison and Kevin McGuigan for electoral purposes.

 Mr Maskey said.

 “The brutal murders of both Gerard Davison and Kevin McGuigan have been exploited by the Unionist parties for their own internal electoral intentions and Alasdair McDonnell’s scurrilous allegations are clearly an attempt to move the SDLP onto the same ground to score cheap political points.

 “Sinn Féin has repeatedly challenged the SDLP to either put up or shut up and if Alasdair McDonnell or any other member of the SDLP has any information on the murders of Gerard Davison or Kevin McGuigan then they should bring that to the police.”
