DUP living in parallel universe - Gildernew
Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has said the DUP are living in a parallel universe.
The Fermanagh South Tyrone MP was speaking after reports the DUP met with representatives of loyalist paramilitaries.
“It is truly astonishing that the DUP are meeting with representatives of loyalist paramilitaries to discuss Brexit rather than listening to the majority who voted to reject Brexit, who want to protect the Good Friday Agreement and who are fearful of a crash-out Brexit.
“Brexit will have serious impacts for the people of the north and the island of Ireland.
"Given the recent revelations about the DUP links to Ulster Resistance this is all the more concerning.
“I would like to know if the DUP called for loyalist groups to disband and disarm and set aside their campaigns of murder, racketeering, extortion, drug dealing and sectarian threats?”
