ALLIANCE prospective candidate for Lagan Valley, Seamus Close, has said that the Government should stop acting like an election agent for the UUP and Sinn Fein, following the release of a Downing Street statement today.
Mr Close said: “With its sickening admiration for the problem parties, the Government is coming very close to acting as election agent for Sinn Fein and the UUP.
“Statements from Downing Street should recognise that there are parties that are part of the solution that have never sullied their reputation with weapons or tribalism.
“By placing its trust in the bowler hats and balaclavas of the UUP and Sinn Fein alone, the Government has wasted an opportunity to get our Assembly back on its feet.
“Now it seems the Government hopes to re-activate its failed attempts at sequencing after the election. Sometimes it takes more than two to tango.”
