Statement by TUV Leader Jim Allister:-
“What a night – victory over Russia and victory on the Maze!
“Congratulations to all who campaigned so hard against the Provo Project at the Maze, particularly innocent victims. Every signature on our petition helped force the DUP into a monumental climb down. We must ensure there is no backsliding on the issue!
“Despite all the diversionary talk from Peter Robinson about the changing stance of others, his Maze u-turn is seismic, but none the less welcome for that.
“The logic of Mr Robinson’s analysis of how Sinn Fein is still wedded to justifying terror, leads to the obvious question of why he still sustains them in government?
“Patently, OFMDFM is and will be in disarray over the Maze, which, of course, typifies the paralysis and dysfunctionalism at the heart and top of this failed government.”
