Perhaps someone in authority in Sinn Fein could remind Martina Anderson MEP that she was elected by voters in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom and not the Republic of Ireland.

Following her recent unpleasant outburst in Strasbourg, not for the first time, it is clear that Ms Anderson has difficulty in recognising who she is meant to be representing; the people of Northern Ireland.

The tenor of her speech was not only embarrassing but disrespectful and offensive.

Sinn Fein on one hand demand respect yet Ms Anderson by her actions demonstrates either a lack of understanding or refusal to follow the terms of what it actually means.

That is known as hypocrisy.
