SF has no interest in a shared future - Robinson

DUP East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson has said the Sinn Fein focus on a divisive border poll at all costs shows that any commitment to building a shared future is in the Sinn Fein rear-view mirror.

Mr Robinson said,

“The census publication shows there are three minorities in Northern Ireland. That trend has been developing over the last two decades. Sinn Fein’s sole response to the census has not been about building a shared future or the provision of public services, rather it has been about their divisive border poll plans.

Sinn Fein evidently only believe in a shared future if involves everyone sharing their 32 county plans. Sinn Fein’s record on treating unionist minorities in the last twelve months has been shameful.

One only must look at how pro-union people are treated in the nationalist controlled councils. Whether it is Fermanagh, Omagh, Londonderry, Newry, Newcastle or Kilkeel, Sinn Fein has proved that despite a sizable British minority, there is no space for Britishness. Not a Union Flag to mark the Duke of Edinburgh’s or Her Majesty the Queen’s passing. There’s no space for the loyal orders. There’s no space for anyone selling a poppy and there’s a normalisation of council facilities being named after republican terrorists.

The Sinn Fein support for the Northern Ireland Protocol despite near universal unionist opposition, is another clear indication that Sinn Fein has no interest in sharing if you don’t share their constitutional outlook. That is not the spirit of the Belfast or successor Agreements.”
