Sinn Féin - On Your Side

People will not be fooled by Foster’s silence on RHI – Maskey

11 February, 2017 - by Alex Maskey


Sinn Féin's Alex Maskey has said Arlene Foster and the DUP continue to be in denial over the RHI scandal.

Speaking in response to an article by Arlene Foster in this morning's Irish News Alex Maskey said.

"Arlene Foster’s silence on the RHI scandal says more about the politics of the DUP and its contempt for the public. The people will not be fooled.

"The botched RHI scheme, which is putting millions of pounds up in smoke was signed, sealed and delivered by the DUP.

"The DUP's mishandling of the RHI scandal and the arrogance they have displayed for whole sections of the community brought about the current election.

"Arlene Foster also restated her rejection of the rights of Irish speakers to equality.

"The DUP needs to understand there will be no return to the status quo.

"Sinn Féin demands equality and respect for all and integrity in the political institutions.

“What Sinn Féin wins in the negotiations which follow the election will be a win for all citizens.”
