SF criticise Blair over Agreement

Sinn Fein is accusing the British government of dragging their feet on their duty to the Good Friday Agreement.

Sinn Fein is accusing the British government of dragging their feet on their duty to the Good Friday Agreement.

The party is blaming Tony Blair for prolonging the deadlock in progress after the Prime Minister admitted the British government has not implemented key aspects of the agreement.

Sinn Fein Chairperson Mitchel Mc Loughlin says movement is needed from Tony Blair.

He said: "It has quite clearly been breached by the government, and a line taken by many in the mainstream media is that Tony Blair meant by an act of completion, the IRA only, but the Good Friday Agreement was not signed by the IRA, it was signed by the rest of us, including the British government."

"Tony Blair, in the same speech admitted quite frankly, that the British government had not implemented key aspects of the agreement that it had direct responsibility for."
