SINN FEIN PLAYING PARTITIONIST CARD ON ELDERLY – HARTE

first_imgSenator Jimmy Harte has launched a stinging attack on Donegal Sinn Fein accusing them of playing the partitionist card about the elderly.Senator Jimmy HarteThe Letterkenny-based Labour politician said we must be aware there is a party in government in Northern Ireland that is also in opposition here – with a different story.“Last week its members spoke about the pensioners’ telephone allowance and issued a postcard campaign. As often happens in “Dragons’ Den”, there is a big flaw in its project. “It has not called for the pensioners across the Border to have a telephone allowance. The Administration of which it is part refused to sanction this in Northern Ireland. according to Sinn Féin , the pensioner in Castlederg in County Tyrone is different from the the pensioner in Castlefin in County Donegal .“This is another part of the party’s hypocrisy in Northern Ireland to which we must point,” claimed Senator Harte.He added he was sure the pensioners in Northern Ireland are waiting on the announcement that Sinn Fein in the Stormont Government are introducing a telephone allowance.“The difference is where SF are in government they refuse to introduce a telephone allowance for OAP’s but where they are in opposition they want to bring it in. “It’s a case of Free State Sinn Fein and Ulster Sinn Fein operating two agendas,” he added.SINN FEIN PLAYING PARTITIONIST CARD ON ELDERLY – HARTE was last modified: November 3rd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:eldelryjimmy hartepartitionist cardSinn Feinlast_img read more
