Aontú Seeks a Meeting with the Northern Secretary as SF/SDLP damage Devolution
Derry Aontú Cllr Emmet Doyle and party leader Peadar Tóibín TD have sought a meeting with the Northern Secretary Brandon Lewis to challenge the damage being done to the Good Friday Agreement by the Tory Imposition of Abortion.
“It is fair to comment that this week will see the enormous damage being done to the devolution project in the North, yet this betrayal comes not from Unionist parties, but from so-called Nationalists. First Sinn Fein sat by and let the Tories implement welfare reform here, now Nationalists will sit back and allow the British Government to impose abortion on demand in this part of the island against the will of the Assembly and the people it serves."
"Not so long ago the SF President held a banner in New York emblazoned with ‘England Out of Ireland’ – now her party is inviting England to legislate in violation of the devolution settlement – again."
"What is worse is the SDLP – whose leader told us a Nationalist party couldn’t be led from Westminster, himself voted in Westminster for this imposition of abortion. In their feeble attempt to steal SF’s Woke cloths, the SDLP has abandoned any of the principles of its founders and is now an ideological husk. It exists as a vehicle of personal ambition and opportunity for its leadership."
"Aontú will not sit by and allow the British Government to dictate to this part of Ireland. We have stood firm in our resolve in support for the Human Right to life from the day of our foundation and unlike others, that will not bin that Human Right to suit the political winds."
