McNarry 'total hypocrite' - Brolly

28 September, 2007

Sinn Féin Language Spokesperson, Francie Brolly has branded UUP MLA David McNarry a total hypocrite on the issue of cultural diversity.

Mr Brolly said:

"David McNarry is complaining that funding for an Ulster Scots Academy is being with held. While I agree that the Ulster Scots Culture needs to be funded it is unfortunate that those who should be driving it do not have their plans far enough advanced to allow the funds for an Ulster Scots Academy to be released.

"While I sympathise with the Ulster Scots activists I find David McNarry's attitude to be totally hypocritical. While Mr McNarry is complaining about the lack of funds for this Academy he has tabled a motion at the Assembly calling on Executive Ministers to stop using the Irish Language in correspondence. Either David McNarry and his Ulster Unionist colleagues are for cultural diversity or they are not - they can't have it both ways." ENDS
