Statement by TUV leader, Jim Allister
“I’m sure I am not the only person nauseated by the convenient pontificating by Sinn Fein following the death of Prison Officer Ismay and the ghoulish celebration of his death by republican inmates.
“How many times did Raymond McCartney and his ilk cheer on hearing of an IRA murder while himself a prisoner in the Maze?
“Now, when their terrorist successors, using Provo semtex, follow the IRA/Sinn Fein handbook on murder, we are supposed to applaud their hypocrisy.
“It would be better if IRA/Sinn Fein helped the PSNI trace their stocks of semtex and spare us all their crocodile tears.”
