SDLP response to strategic pro-Agreement approach criticised

Sinn Féin’s Conor Murphy has said that the SDLP response to the call to the by Martin McGuinness to open a discussion on developing a strategic pro-agreement approach to the next Westminster elections was viewed by many as a fundemental error.

The Sinn Féin MP said, “Many like myself view the SDLP’s response to Martin’s call a serious political mistake.

“The refusal by the SDLP’s leadership to even discuss how best we can maximise progressive and pro-Agreement representation in Westminster and the local institutions is a fundamental error.

He added, “The SDLP’s negative response is an ill-thought out, knee-jerk reaction and represents a lost opportunity. It demonstrates a lack of strategic vision on the part of the SDLP and points up the need for more innovative and forward-looking politics which can effectively counter the unionist anti-Agreement axis.”
