Doug Beattie said ( about The UK ) : “Action is needed immediately because the pharmaceutical companies which supply Northern Ireland will be making critical supply decisions at the end of this month. "It is within the Government’s gift to act and they should do so with or without EU approval. We cannot wait any longer for Northern Ireland’s people to be used in a tug-of-war between the UK Government and the EU. The UK Government has a responsibility to act to protect its citizens and that’s what should happen” External link

Doug Beattie said : "Kilmicheal (sic) (1920) and Narrow Water (1979) the 2 IRA operations that taught the elite of (the) British army and the establishment the cost of occupying Ireland. Pity for everyone they were such slow learners”. 'Kilmichael' refers to an IRA ambush near Cork in 1920 in which 17 members of the Royal Irish Constabulary Auxiliary Division died, while 18 soldiers were killed in an IRA ambush at Narrow Water, near Warrenpoint, in 1979. In a statement yesterday, Stanley apologised for the tweet, writing: “I apologise for the content of an inappropriate and insensitive tweet that I sent yesterday”. DUP leader Ms Foster said the tweet was “shameful” and tweeted from her own account that she will be writing to the chair of the Dáil about the incident. She wrote: “I will be writing to the Ceann Comhairle of the Dáil about this shameful tweet. “Although deleted, it is outrageous that someone with such warped views can hold a senior position in the Dáil. “SF talk about respect & equality but there’s not much sign of respect for victims”. A Sinn Fein spokesperson said: “We note that Brian Stanley has deleted a tweet that was inappropriate and insensitive, and that he has apologised. “We all have a responsibility in this Decade of Centenaries to remember and commemorate the past in a respectful manner”. The Ulster Unionist Party’s justice spokesperson Doug Beattie described the TD’s remarks as a perversion of history. “These vile and reprehensible comments by Brian Stanley once again expose the fact that Sinn Fein are not a normal political party. On one hand they complain when people link them to the IRA but on the other they revel and gloat about IRA atrocities," External link

Doug Beattie said : "Kilmicheal (sic) (1920) and Narrow Water (1979) the 2 IRA operations that taught the elite of (the) British army and the establishment the cost of occupying Ireland. Pity for everyone they were such slow learners”. 'Kilmichael' refers to an IRA ambush near Cork in 1920 in which 17 members of the Royal Irish Constabulary Auxiliary Division died, while 18 soldiers were killed in an IRA ambush at Narrow Water, near Warrenpoint, in 1979. In a statement yesterday, Stanley apologised for the tweet, writing: “I apologise for the content of an inappropriate and insensitive tweet that I sent yesterday”. DUP leader Ms Foster said the tweet was “shameful” and tweeted from her own account that she will be writing to the chair of the Dáil about the incident. She wrote: “I will be writing to the Ceann Comhairle of the Dáil about this shameful tweet. “Although deleted, it is outrageous that someone with such warped views can hold a senior position in the Dáil. “SF talk about respect & equality but there’s not much sign of respect for victims”. A Sinn Fein spokesperson said: “We note that Brian Stanley has deleted a tweet that was inappropriate and insensitive, and that he has apologised. “We all have a responsibility in this Decade of Centenaries to remember and commemorate the past in a respectful manner”. The Ulster Unionist Party’s justice spokesperson Doug Beattie described the TD’s remarks as a perversion of history. “These vile and reprehensible comments by Brian Stanley once again expose the fact that Sinn Fein are not a normal political party. On one hand they complain when people link them to the IRA but on the other they revel and gloat about IRA atrocities," External link
