“Legacy Bill Amounts to Get Out Of Jail Free Card” – Cllr Denise Mullen

Aontú Deputy leader Cllr Denise Mullen and Aontú Rep Gerard Herdman led Aontú members at the Time for Truth protest in Belfast yesterday.

Speaking today, Cllr Mullen said: “The Legacy Bill is an affront to the basic principles of transparency and the rule of law. Westminster are trying to offer British soldiers who committed murder in Ireland a get out of jail free card. This cannot be allowed to happen.”

Cllr Mullen Continued “We know the British Military committed horrific crimes during the troubles. The British Military killed hundreds of Irish Citizens. This even included the killing of elected representatives such as Cllr Eddie Fullerton and Bernard O'Hagan. They also killed party election workers. Incredibly the British State killed dozens of citizens in the south of Ireland also.”

“Aontú will stand up for victims and survivors of British collusion and push forward to deliver truth and justice. Instead of an Amnesty for British Crimes, we need an All-Ireland investigation into British Collusion. County by county, report after report, the full extent of British state-sponsored violence is becoming known. It is now time for a comprehensive investigation into the death toll of British collusion on our island.” Cllr Mullen’s concluded.

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
