Stephen Walker has reported another bolt from the SDLP to rain on the increasing failing Sinn Feinn. In a Commons discussion, Ms Ritchie claimed that the First minister said that money from the North South bodies should be paid to increasingly "restless" loyalists, via "community projects" .

From the article;

"The DUP leader, first minister of Northern Ireland and former member of this house, only recently complained to the Irish government that funding going into worthwhile North-South infrastructure projects should instead go to community projects for loyalists - because loyalist paramilitaries were getting restless and increasingly of a disposition to strike out."

Nigel Dodds challenged Ms Ritchie to provide evidence to support her claim, to which she replied that the evidence was there.

The moon is made of cheese.

I won't be providing the evidence.......but I suspect it is there somewhere.
Time will tell.

Never was a fan of Ritchie but at least she had the gumption to stand up to opportunist loyalists. THe DUP's cosy relationship, which we always strongly suspected, is just plain naked these days

Playing silly games all the SDLP have left.
So, you support money being taken, as a supposed republican, from North South bodies to give to loyalist drug dealing gangsters?

I'd like to see some evidence of Robinson saying this. Tis a bold statement from Ritchie.

the cheques flew out in the race to appease the unwashed oppressed, so the Grab All Association and co got all the dosh, now that it is time to balance the books (and believe me both governments are falling over themselves to do it) we hear the feint squawking of a hypocritical violin...

Just what are Loyalists to do?
Drug dealing and being a "Brigadier" doesn't offer much in the way of job security nowdays and Cameron is threatening to take the DLA away.
FFS they can't even get a round of golf since republicans put Mickey D. in Phoenix park!
The BBC have a duty under equality legislation to run a "Loyalists in Need" night.(No Euros)
