The hypocrisy of unionists sickening

Published 26/08/2015

Unionist politicians in the North epitomise hypocrisy! They are up in arms about the IRA killing each other, but not so many years ago they were calling on the SAS to kill the IRA. Political point scoring?

Unionist politicians are failing cancer patients by not funding 40 cancer drugs, which patients could get in England, Scotland and shortly Wales.

Cancer patients know that £25m was spent talking about parading and flags, well over £24m spent on the Twaddell Avenue protest, and £4m or £5m spent policing Orange parades every year. In effect they are spending money on marching and flags which could be better used to help people suffering from cancer.
