Nothing To Celebrate In Biden Visit – TUV

Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:

“Like the Belfast Agreement itself, I find nothing to celebrate in the visit of President Biden

“Biden is irredeemably partisan having as a Senator  fought any easing of laws which would have allowed wanted IRA terrorists to be extradited to face justice in the United Kingdom. His continuing stance is anti-British and anti-Unionist.“With our public finances in Northern Ireland severely stretched we could do well without squandering £7m for Biden to try and put a face on celebrating of failed agreement. In one sense indeed his visit only serves to underscore what a lamentable failure the Belfast Agreement has been.”
