McAllister slams ‘sectarian’ Sinn Fein leaflet

Alliance Councillor Nuala McAllister has criticised Sinn Fein for distributing a ‘sectarian’ leaflet across North Belfast, detailing the breakdown of the Protestant and Catholic population in the area.

She said: “This amounts to nothing more than trying to make the election a sectarian headcount rather than about the issues.

“The people of North Belfast will not be bullied into how they vote by these tactics designed to scaremonger by Sinn Fein – a move they clearly haven’t learnt gets them no-where.

“Last year I ran on the message of a shared future and the people of North Belfast responded. Not only did I get a brilliant result for Alliance, but I took a Sinn Fein seat signalling voters wanted to move away from their kind of tribal politics.”
