Obscene and calculated sectarianism

Only austerity, sectarianism and division on offer from Sinn Fein

Only austerity, sectarianism and division on offer from Sinn Fein

Gerry Kelly and Sinn Fein have been accused by Workers Party candidate Gemma Weir of ‘obscene and calculated sectarianism’ after they appealed to north Belfast voters on the basis of their religious background.

‘Gerry Kelly has no political programme for the people of north Belfast”, Ms Weir said.

‘His election strategy has been an obscene and calculated sectarian headcount. He is quite happy to give tax breaks to big businesses and cut jobs and public services to pay for it. He then compounds his austerity agenda by seeking votes from one religious denomination’

 ‘This is the ‘political’ future offered by Kelly and Sinn Fein: austerity,  sectarianism and division. Voters in north Belfast can give their verdict on Thursday‘, Ms Weir concluded

 Sinn Fein has distributed a leaflet in North Belfast urging Catholics to “Make the change, make history”  – on the basis that they now outnumber protestants in the constituency.
