DUP hypocrisy on EU funding knows no bounds – Anderson

23 January, 2019 - by Martina Anderson MEP


Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson has said it’s hypocritical of the DUP to talk about concerns over peace funding when its MEP Dianne Dodds voted against funding extensions and continues to support Brexit. 

Martina Anderson said: 

“It’s rich of Dianne Dodds to talk about peace funding now when she voted against an extension to funding in the European Parliament in July 2016

“And let’s not forget that her party supported and continue to support Brexit despite the democratic wishes of the majority of people of the north. 

“What did Dianne Dodds and the rest of the DUP think was going to happen when they supported hard-line Brexiteers? 

“It’s yet another example of the DUPs detachment from reality on Brexit as they continue to pursue delusional policies that will hit the north hardest.”
