Don't take part in loyalist protest parade, NI21 leader Basil McCrea urges

NI21 leader Basil McCrea called on those intending to join the parade not to attend as its purpose "is extremely unclear".

Mr McCrea also accused the DUP and UUP of "leading loyalists up the garden path" over the flag issue.

"They repeatedly stoked up tensions, questioned the rule of law and the Parades Commission, and then washed their hands when protests turned violent.

"This was highly irresponsible and showed weak leadership by unionism," he said.
