“Stephen Farry heralds progress in the Windsor Framework yet his Party had called for the unimplementable NI Protocol to be ‘rigorously implemented’.
Rather than campaigning to exclude unionists from the NI Assembly, the Alliance Party and Naomi Long should apologise for being an impediment to getting a better deal from Brussels.
All the while the DUP was trying to get a better deal whilst working within the Assembly immediately after the NI Protocol was signed, the Alliance Party sided with the EU and Sinn Fein and campaigned for the Protocol to be ‘rigorously implemented’ rather than work with us to get a better deal.
This was a mistake and they should now accept that the DUP has been right to campaign for a better deal. Our job would have been a lot easier if the other Executive Parties had joined our campaign.”
