Durkan cynically using the victims of State Collusion

I am sick and tired of listening to Stoopus Maximus on the issue of the OTR legislation and his new found support for the Collusion issue. Let's get something clear from the off, the stoops don't give two fucks about the families of those who died through State Collusion.

The evidence shows the SDLP for what they are, shameless opportunists!

-In the 1980's the SDLP denied that there was a Shoot-To-Kill policy

-When the issue of Collusion was first brought up by Sinn Féin the SDLP described it as 'republican propaganda'

- I know from An Fhirnne members, a body that represents over a 100 families of British State collusion that they have been asked to participate and have not bothered their arse

-When an unarmed republican was shot dead by British State Forces in Downpatrick the local SDLP MP expressed his satisfaction

-The SDLP ignored the relatives of those killed through state violence when they lobbied MPs at Westminster and MLAs at Stormont

-The SDLP members of the Policing Board have abjectly failed to deal with the issue and in particular those PSNI members who were centrally involved in collusion

-Their lack of action in response to the passing of RUC/PSNI files on 400 republicans to loyalist death squads

-Hugh Orde investigated 20 cases of serving RUC/PSNI officers for prosecution, what happened to these prosecutions now that he is Chief Constable? What have the SDLP done about this issue on the policing board?

This crap about Sinn Féin not caring about the victims of State Collusion is insulting to people’s intelligence; let's not forget that our party members and supporters were the primary targets of State Collusion.

Free State SDLP cheerleaders may buy this tripe but I don't and neither do the families involved. They see the SDLP "conversion" for what it really is, shameless gutter politics!

Where was the SDLP when the shit was hitting the fan and these people were being murdered? When the families lobbied for justice where was the SDLP?

Martin McGuinness put it best "Mark Durkan is using the victims of state violence as political footballs to try and score cheap political points against Sinn Féin instead of confronting the British government on their policy of collusion and cover up"

"Sinn Fein will continue to support the victims of collusion and state violence as we always have done"


The levels to which the SDLP will stoop to appear relevant are endless!
