SDLP action is 'cowardly'

I AM disappointed that SDLP councillors on Belfast City Council felt the need to vote against an RIR homecoming parade.

I fear their motivation was a fear of being seen as soft compared to Sinn Fein colleagues.

The SDLP rightly recognises the supreme sacrifice made by Constable Ronan Kerr. Yet, on the same day, they refuse to honour our troops in Afghanistan.

I hope the SDLP's cowardice will be seen for what it is - and that as many of their supporters as possible welcome home our brave servicemen and women.
