Ulster Unionist MLA Michael McGimpsey has responded to remarks by former Sinn Fein Minister Conor Murphy.
The South Belfast Assemblyman said;
“Mr Murphy should take heed of the old adage that people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. This is a man who is only known for his handling of last Winter’s Water Crisis. As a result of Conor Murphy’s bungling, the people of South Belfast – and indeed throughout Northern Ireland – had to queue up for bottled water.
Mr Murphy states that my Party got rid of me after the election. It must be galling for him that he is the one who was dropped by his Party due to his incompetence at DRD, and as a result the newly promoted John O’Dowd is now the acting Deputy First Minister instead of Mr Murphy.”
