Budget 2020: Statements
I was up in the North on Saturday, in Armagh. I was talking to some guys behind the goals and the try line and they were saying that they had gathered all the money up that they were required to gather up for an investment in their clubhouse, which was to bring more young kids in and put a physical fitness room in place. I asked why they could not go ahead with it and one of them said, "because that shagging Assembly is not sitting." He said they were not allocating any money for sports capital around the province. It is gas to listen to Sinn Féin here pontificating about the very prudent and cautious budget that has been brought in today when it is not doing anything for people in the North of Ireland. Sinn Féin Senators should reflect on that before they come in here being so stringent in their criticism of what, as I said earlier, is a very cautious and prudent budget. That is one of the things I wrote down.
