Sinn Fein describes NI signs as a waste of money

7th August 2012 | Warning Signs

An MLA has urged for signs reading "welcome to Northern Ireland" along the Irish Republic border to be taken down.

Phil Flanagan, Sinn Fein MLA for Fermanagh and South Tyrone, believes that the signs are a waste of money, which could have instead been spent on repairing roads.

Mr Flanagan went on to say that the notices also go against advice from the tourist board.

"These signs have angered many living in border communities who suffer the negative impact of partition on a daily basis," he noted.

Mr Flanagan questioned how the minister for regional development Danny Kennedy could justify spending money on the signs.

These comments come after Peterborough Today reported that signage has also been criticised in the city.

Warning signs that have been erected for motorists have been obscured by trees and hedgerows, with a representative from Enterprise Peterborough describing clearing the signs as a "difficult task".ADNFCR-2754-ID-801423578-ADNFCR
