Murphy challenges SDLP leader to debate on manifesto
Sinn Féin's Conor Murphy has called on SDLP leader Colum Eastwood to come out from under the bed and withdraw the empty promises made in his party's election manifesto.
Mr Murphy said;
"The SDLP's election manifesto is a piece of fiction based on uncosted, unrealistic and hollow policies.
"Sinn Féin's manifesto on the other hand is costed and our commitments are deliverable.
"If Colum Eastwood still stands by his party's manifesto then he should come out publicly and say so instead of hiding behind others.
"I am challenging him to give the electorate the answers they need.
"Colum Eastwood needs to get out from under the bed and stand by his manifesto or withdraw it."
