TUV leader Jim Allister said that the ‘Vandalism of Dunloy Banner is an Attack on NHS, Key Workers and Unionist Community’.
Statement by Jim Allister:
“This pandemic has seen people come together for the good of the entire community and there are countless examples across North Antrim of people going the extra mile to ensure that people are receiving the support they need in challenging times. Yet even in the midst of a pandemic there are those who cannot hide their bitterness and narrow minded bigotry. This was graphically illustrated when a banner supporting the NHS and essential workers erected at Dunloy Orange hall was vandalised just hours after being erected yesterday evening.
“The nation in National Health Service is the United Kingdom whose flag the vandals took such exception to. This is an attack not just on the long suffering Unionist community of the village but on the entire NHS and the key workers others wanted to show support for. Those responsible for the attack should be ashamed of themselves and I trust they will be brought to justice.”
