Gordon Lyons,

“This approach by Sinn Fein is a further demonstration of their petty politics of exclusion.

The days of Sinn Fein expecting unionists to be seen, but not heard are over.

Power-sharing in Northern Ireland can only have meaning if it is based on the principles of equality and mutual respect.

This exclusion demonstrates that Sinn Fein has no respect for the people we represent.

For our part, the DUP is committed to working with all parties to repair our politics, reset relations and restore fairness for all.”
