Questions remain over decision to remove workers from port – O’Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has said questions remain over the decision to remove workers from the Port of Larne following reports of threats. 

John O’Dowd said; 

“Serious questions remain over the decision by Mid and East Antrim Council to remove workers from the Port of Larne based on reports of threats. 

“There is no place in society for threats against workers and everyone should be able to go about their work free from fear or intimidation. 

“The safe return of all workers to the port should be a priority. 

“Mid and East Antrim Council need to clarify what information it was operating from and basing its decisions on if it was not the information given to it by the PSNI. 

“The Agriculture minister also needs to urgently clarify his position and why his department’s workers are not back at work. If he has any differing assessment from the one given by the PSNI then he needs to explain that.”

So when a General Election is called, vote for hope, vote for change and vote this failed…

This was the time to call a general election, but the government didn’t have the guts to call one.

We need change like never before. We need a new government that will put workers, families, and community first.

It’s time for new people with new ideas.  It’s time for change.

‘Recognition of a Palestinian state will happen’. Welcome words from @MichealMartinTD but falls short of a firm declaration.
There may be no Palestine left to recognise unless Ireland & international community act decisively and immediately. No more delays.
