DUP MP Gregory Campbell has accused Sinn Fein’s Francie Molloy of an “irony by-pass” and of being grossly offensive in relation to comments about the decision by Parliament to extend air strikes against ISIL into Syria.
On Twitter, the Mid Ulster MP had described the vote as being “Brits back to what they do best, Murder.”
The DUP MP said, ‘Francie Molloy’s comments are deeply offensive on a number of different levels. However, they demonstrate the irony by-pass which most Sinn Fein members appear to have had.
Mr Molloy appears to believe that the air-strikes are what “Brits do best”, which is an interesting comment from a man who once threatened us that if the IRA didn’t get its own way they would “go back to what they do best”.
It is not the first time however that we have seen Sinn Fein members use grossly offensive comments to distract from their own failures. Francie Molloy could have gone to Westminster and voted against air-strikes, just as Sinn Fein MPs could have turned up to vote on the welfare reform issue they caused so much difficulty over. To distract people from their impotence it is much easier to issue an offensive tweet.
After reminding us briefly that he actually does exist, presumably Mr Molloy will now go back to what he does best; failing to represent the people of Mid Ulster.’
