Where are the SDLP accounts then, Dolores?

Published 26/06/2013

SDLP MLA Dolores Kelly, speaking in the planning debate in the Assembly, called for transparency in party donations, so we could see the big businesses that paid into Sinn Fein and DUP coffers (as if the SDLP publishes its accounts).

Maybe Dolores can tell us what happened to Margaret Ritchie's pledge three years ago to publish the SDLP accounts – something we are still waiting for.

Sinn Fein is the only party on the island of Ireland that publishes a full set of accounts, so maybe Dolores will tell us how long it takes to publish SDLP accounts. Or will we ever see them?

Does Dolores believe that the electorate is stupid, or that she can claim anything without scrutiny?

So, Dolores: when are the SDLP publishing their accounts?
