Deselection of Davy Hyland a Farce

It has come as no surprise to us that Davy Hyland is not standing as an MLA once again. The reason for this move is not simply because he was deselected over other issues, but more because of the upcoming legal case, where Sinn Fein will be made accountable for openly discriminating against FAIR. The ongoing legal case is to come to a conclusion in the New Year. The Northern Ireland Auditor has taken them to court on the grounds of discrimination surrounding Sinn Feinís objection to FAIR using Newtownhamilton Community Centre and using council funds in this discrimination.

As a consequence of the above discrimination case, Sinn Fein stand to have 15 councillors dismissed. Already Councillor Mick Murphy says he will not be selected as a result of his view that Sinn Fein is supporting the police too quickly. This again is not the case. It is quite obvious that Sinn Fein are only trying to save face as they know they will lose this legal case and ultimately lose 15 councillors.
