No one is safe from their bigotry

Once more the bigotry of the DUP is exposed as they refused to support an important motion on disability at Ballymoney Council simply because it was put forward by Nationalists. The motion called on the council to adopt the Barcelona Declaration to ensure that the rights of those with disabilities were properly taken account of. This is in line with the British and Irish governments and 400 councils across Ireland. But however laudable the sentiments in the motion might be, the DUP still prefer petty sectarianism. I hope any DUP voters with disabilities have a long think about the choice they made at the last election.
