DUP assembly member William Humphrey refused to directly condemn the attack on Belfast Lord Mayor Mairtin O Muilleoir despite being asked 18 times in a row.


During an interview on BBC Radio Ulster‘s Evening Eextra programme, Mr Humphrey said his party had advised the council the mayor should not go to the park event, given the tensions in the area around flags. Presenter Seamus McKee repeatedly asked him if the jostling and heckling of Mr O Muilleour was wrong. However, Mr Humphrey did not answer the question directly and said the mayor should have listened to the DUP’s advice. “I’m not going to comment on something I didn’t see,” he added. However, when asked if attacks on police officers who were escorting Mr O Muilleior from the scene were wrong, he said: “All violence is wrong, I said that earlier in the interview”.
