Sinn Féin - On Your Side

‘DUP more interested in Tory Brexit than rights’ - Murphy

20 June, 2018 - by Conor Murphy


The DUP are more interested in facilitating a Tory Brexit than protecting the rights and livelihoods of people in the North, Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has said.

The Newry-Armagh MLA was responding to comments by DUP Deputy Leader Nigel Dodds today.

Conor Murphy commented: “Nigel Dodds shouldn’t be surprised that Sinn Féin will challenge political opponents on their denial of rights to citizens in the North.

“We will continue to do so because it is this denial which is preventing the restoration of a power-sharing executive and assembly in the North.

“We need partners who will legislate for all and who are committed to genuine power sharing and embrace rights and respect.

“Regrettably, the DUP remain more interested in facilitating the Tory Brexit than protecting the rights and livelihoods of people in the North.”
