DUP Councillors must disassociate themselves from Robinson’s remarks

Recently elected DUP councillors in North Belfast must publically disassociate themselves from remarks made by their party leader Peter Robinson in support of Pastor McConnell of the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle Church.

The call comes from Chris Bailie and Gemma Weir, Workers Party representatives in North Belfast following the First Minister’s public backing of Pastor McConnell whose recent sermon in which he referred to Islam as “heathen” and “satanic”, is under police investigation to establish if it constitutes a hate crime.

The Democratic Unionist Party had three councillors elected in north Belfast last week: Lydia Patterson, Guy Spence and Gareth McKee. We are calling on them to publically disassociate themselves from Peter Robinson’s remarks, clearly state their opposition to racism and declare their commitment to working for a racist free north Belfast”, Chris and Gemma said
