Jim McVeigh: 'We won't be intimidated by those threats'

Councillor Jim McVeigh has accused union politicians for failed leadership, saying they had allowed themselves to be 'led' by a small band of extremists.

He added that his party would respect British tradition, telling unionists that respect was 'not one way'.

We won't be intimidated by those threats.

Their protests are pointless and they will have absolutely no impact on decisions that we take.

– Jim McVeigh, West Belfast Sinn Féin
