Once again we have witnessed to usual hypocrisy of Sinn Fein IRA in relation to the peaceful protests in Markethill and Portadown on Monday evening.

They accused unionist politicians of being irresponsible and reckless rhetoric, this is laughable if it wasn’t so serious. The party is responsible for the current political mess and mayhem as usual.

Its leadership were the ones coming on to the TV screens advising people to stay home and stay safe but when their terrorist buddy died namely Bobby Storey it was a free-for-all for republicans to break the rules, attend the wake, attend in thousands the funeral and Show of Strength so we won’t be lectured by SF/IRA.

SF/IRA bombed the heart out of Portadown and Markethill for years and they still refuse to condemn such violent actions,

I await them condemning the IRA blood thirsty murder and bombing campaign in the area.

Fellow unionists are disgusted at the two-tier PSNI system currently and also the constant attack on our culture so it is high time their concerns are listened to.

There can be no Irish Language Act delivered by SF and the DUP, The NI Protocol must be abolished and equality in policing must be delivered.
