She also attacked my statement that at the start of the year there were 1,994 Protestants on the waiting list in the North Belfast constituency and 1,988 Roman Catholics. Those are the Housing Executive's own figures but because they weren't the sort of figures she wanted she rejected them. Here again it is a case of 'never let the facts get in the way of Sinn Fein propaganda'. For years they have talked about waiting lists and then when the real truth about waiting lists is explained they want to ignore them and move the argument on to something else.
That is why the DUP has been repeating the real facts about social housing in North Belfast.
I debated this issue during the week with Alex Maskey on the Nolan Show on Radio Ulster. I was able to present the facts about waiting lists and waiting times but he seemed to have no interest in the facts. He simply wanted to keep on repeating the republican mantra of discrimination. Nevertheless it was a great opportunity to disseminate the facts to a province-wide audience and to expose the false propaganda of the SDLP and Sinn Fein.
Then next Tuesday my DUP colleagues William Humphrey and Paula Bradley will speak in an adjournment debate at Stormont, tabled by the DUP, on social housing in North Belfast. After the other North Belfast MLAs have spoken, I will be able to respond at the end of the debate. I look forward very much to that debate and a further opportunity to nail some of the myths and lies.
