Commenting on Sinn Fein’s refusal to attend events this Remembrance Day,
UKIP Spokesman for Northern Ireland, Robert Hill said:
“I know this will be a relief to many veterans who are fed up to their back-teeth of the hypocrisy from this party. It will be a long time, if ever – before the actions of their Provisional wing will be forgotten.
“The IRA’s relentless attacks on the security forces, their barbaric and indiscriminate attacks on members of the public and their cowardly and murderous attack on the Enniskillen cenotaph on Remembrance Day – among many more atrocities are still fresh in many of our memories.
“Sinn Fein claim that they do not want pictured with anyone in uniform. Well I can assure them – they would find it almost impossible to find anyone in uniform who would would want to be pictured with them. Putting designer suits on terrorists does not change the bitterness, hatred and evil inside them.”
Commenting further, Robert added:
“This party has finally proven to the world once again that their actions to date were just a carefully managed sham to keep them in their plush Government jobs – to keep the money flowing into their bank accounts. They care nothing for the sacrifice paid by so many over the years and their absence from these ceremonies will be welcome news for many.”
