Alex Easton Independent Unionist MLA has called out Stephen Farry MP for North Down on his position on the Union and asked, have you got nothing better to do with your time than take part in debates about Irish Unity as he is set to join Irish unity panel discussion at Westminster book launch


Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“This is just continuous and seems to be all out MP is interested in discussing a United Ireland. Our MP for North Down represents a constituency where the vast majority of the constituency supports the Union and staying in the Union, they do not want a border poll and they do not want or support a United Ireland. So it begs the question as to why our MP continually is getting embroiled and getting into more and more discussions about Irish unity and Border Polls and a United Ireland.”

“Has our MP not realized he represents North Down and we do not want or support a United Ireland. I must question why he feels the need to get involved in these discussions, has he not got better things to do like representing his constituents in North Down on issues such as health, education, and job creation. Policing. One really has to wonder what the real agenda is from our MP because it’s out of step with the vast majority of the North Down population. It appears clear to me that our MP supports a United Ireland and is pushing for one by attending these discussions and all it is achieving is to cause fear, division and uncertainty.”
