Irish Senator, protestant and unionist David Norris slammed the behavior of loyalism in the Senate. He said:
"As a southern unionist and someone viewed from the north as a Protestant, I would like to say I am bitterly ashamed of the behaviour of people who call themselves unionist and protestants. They are a disgrace to any decent representation of those values... They are an appalling embarrassment.
When they were prisoners, they were like neanderthals, reading comics and doing press-ups. Whereas the Sinners, for whom I couldn't give a toss, at least had the intelligence to do a university degree."
