Willie McCrea, at heart a hypocrite!

Following on from the news that Jim Allister has left the DUP there has been some speculation that Willie McCrea may follow suit. This follows on from his speech in Westminster when he said



"I believed last week that Martin McGuinness was a terrorist. I believe he has blood on his hands. I believe that he has been a murderer,"

"I have to tell the House I believe that this week because he is still the same person."

The hypocrisy of the man is a sight to behold; let's just look at his record.

-He was a member of the Shankill Defence Association in 1969 (the group that was largely responsible for the anti-Catholic pogrom in Belfast that August).

-In 1971 he was convicted of riotous behaviour in Dungiven.

-In 1981 he acted as a 'county commander' for the Third Force as did another DUP politician Rev. Ivan Foster.

-In 1975 he conducted the UDR/UVF funeral of Wesley Somerville and Harris Boyle.

Somerville and Boyle were involved in the Miami Show band massacre. Not only where they UVF members but also serving soldiers in the Ulster Defence Regiment and in uniform at the time of the killing.

They killed themselves when the bomb they were planting on the bus of the Miami show band went off prematurely; their "comrades" then machine-gunned the members of the band.

They were also responsible for the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

A volley of shots was fired over their coffins at the service conducted by Willie McCrea.

-In 1996, McCrea famously shared a platform with UVF/LVF mass murderer, Billy Wright and Mark Fulton.

Fulton was one of the men involved in the killing of Bellaghy GAA man Sean Browne. Whilst on the platform with the two he publicly supported them saying that they were "good loyalists"

Willie seems to be a big fan of the bible, could I perhaps suggest Matthew: 7:1-5.

My favourite part is "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye"

Poor Willie, never able to practise what he preaches!
