He added: “Figures which I extracted showed that in respect of the ministerial appointments made by minister Ni Chuilin since May 2011 a Roman Catholic applicant was more than twice as likely as a Protestant applicant to be appointed.
“Of 71 Roman Catholic applicants 14 were appointed, but of 70 Protestant applicants only six were appointed; demonstrating a far higher ratio of selection of Roman Catholics by the Minister.”

Sport NI is arms length body of DCAL. Its primary aim is to develop sport in Northern Ireland and its headquarters are at the House of Sport in south Belfast.

Sport NI declined to comment.

In a statement a DCAL spokeswoman said: “Mr Allister’s assertion that DCAL practices a pattern of religious discrimination in public appointments is utterly untrue.

“All DCAL’s public appointments are made in line with the Code of Practice issued by the Commissioner for Public Appointments NI, and appointments competitions are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.”

Wouldn't it be nice if nobody cared what religion job applicants were? The only important thing should be that the best candidate should get the job.
I understand the need to monitor these issues but is it really news?

Protestants couldn't have much time for sport in between all that marching. Probably reflects the public interest.

Jim Allister :lol: Oh dear the OP is definitely grasping at straws, so much so he probably didn't even realise that he quoted the following:

In a statement a DCAL spokeswoman said: “Mr Allister’s assertion that DCAL practices a pattern of religious discrimination in public appointments is utterly untrue.

“All DCAL’s public appointments are made in line with the Code of Practice issued by the Commissioner for Public Appointments NI, and appointments competitions are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.
He referred to Jim's comments, but not the latter. One wonders why. Oh dear, troll under the bridge. :oops:

It is when SF claim to stand for an Ireland of Equals .... so far the equality seems to consist of all SF ministers being equally unfair .... and forget the Ministerial code of conduct

Equality scares some people.

you seem to be under the mass disillusion that every and all protestants support the Orange Order, and go to every march and every event. Very narrow minded comment.

Knowing Gurdiev's postings I'd suggest that the post might have had a smiley as I suspect it was tongue in cheek .

I agree but discrimination is newsworthy. Sinn Fein's hypocrisy and anti-Protestant bias is exposed every time someone analyses their performance.
