Yesterday, Sinn Féin’s Derry Assembly member, Martina Anderson, posted a tweet stating the pensions have been predominantly for those who fought Britain’s Dirty War in Eire and mainly for those associated in Collusion.

The SDLP leader Colum Eastwood explained the feedback ended up grossly insulting and identified as on the Sinn Féin management to apologise.
