Will all recent disrespect be called out by SF leadership?

Following comments from Sinn Fein President Mary Lou McDonald DUP Mid Ulster MLA Keith Buchannan said,

“It is ridiculous that SF ever vetoed a tree to pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen. It is not just unionists who have been appalled by Sinn Fein’s disrespect. Less than two weeks ago, Sinn Fein Councillors in Mid Ulster vetoed even a simple letter of congratulations being sent to Her Majesty the Queen. Is Mary Lou McDonald prepared to say those actions were both insensitive and wrong?

The Finance Minister Conor Murphy vetoed a rose bush marking the Centenary of Northern Ireland. Michelle O’Neill should call on Conor Murphy to reverse this insensitive decision.

People will make their own judgement about the motivation behind this apparent u-turn from Sinn Fein. It will soon become clear if it is just a short-term tactic to relieve pressure in the teeth of an election campaign.”
