I am absolutely delighted that the UFU have told Jim Allister where he can stick his £12,000. Allister refused to pay for the delegation's visit if they insisted on meeting with Bairbre de Brún as well. Jim Allister has no right to tell anyone who they can or can't speak to. Bairbre de Brún is an MEP the same way Jim Allister is and the UFU have now rightly decided to fund the visit themselves.
Allister accused the union leadership of taking "a spineless decision"
I am very proud that the UFU have decided to put the concerns of its members before placating the likes of Jim Allister.
