Stephen Walker has reported another bolt from the SDLP to rain on the increasing failing Sinn Feinn. In a Commons discussion, Ms Ritchie claimed that the First minister said that money from the North South bodies should be paid to increasingly "restless" loyalists, via "community projects" .
From the article;
"The DUP leader, first minister of Northern Ireland and former member of this house, only recently complained to the Irish government that funding going into worthwhile North-South infrastructure projects should instead go to community projects for loyalists - because loyalist paramilitaries were getting restless and increasingly of a disposition to strike out."
Nigel Dodds challenged Ms Ritchie to provide evidence to support her claim, to which she replied that the evidence was there.
