Candidates must say if they back Twaddell waste

Published 18/04/2016

The recent revelation that Camp Twaddell has cost the taxpayer £18m and counting is not only shocking, but horrifying.

The lack of leadership by unionist parties has whipped up this situation into one where money which could be spent tackling the dissident threat or bolstering community policing is instead spent on officers sitting night after night at Twaddell watching over a black hole on police finances.

I call on those North Belfast candidates whose parties have pledged their support for Twaddell, including the DUP and UUP, who remain on the camp organising committee to publicly tell the people of North Belfast and further afield if they still back such a drain on the public purse.
