DUP Councillor says Ian Paisley will be ‘turning in his grave’ over gay candidate selection

1 Mins read

DUP councillor John Finlay has written to the party officers to say that the party’s founder, Ian Paisley, “must be turning in his grave” at the DUP’s first openly gay councillor.

In a letter sent prior to last week’s council election which has been obtained by Journalist Patricia Devlin said that the DUP’s choice of Alison Bennington to stand for election in Glengormley had been “foolish” and sent “confusing signals to our support base which has consistently welcomed our strong stand on LGBT issues”.

The full letter can be found here which was passed onto Ms Devlin who has since made it public.
