DUP ‘hit back’ at Ulster Unionist comments relating to paramilitary activity motion

1 Mins read

The DUP has hit back at an Ulster Unionist councillor’s comments in relation to a vote at last week’s meeting of Causeway Borough Council.

Coleraine DUP councillor, Trevor Clarke said:

“Cllr McCandless will be fully aware that in the course of discussions on the paramilitarism motion I sought to bring an amendment on behalf of the DUP.

However, instead of allowing me to table that amendment, Cllr McCandless and his Ulster Unionist colleagues voted with Sinn Fein’s proposal to move on to next business. By voting with Sinn Fein, the Ulster Unionists ensured my amendment wasn’t heard.

There is no sense in Cllr McCandless now saying he doesn’t understand the DUP’s position when he voted with Sinn Fein to deny us the opportunity to articulate it during the council debate.

I’d guess the public would prefer to see unionism’s interests being better served by its’ representatives working together for the common good, instead of engaging in meaningless media bun-fights.”
