CONSERVATIVES CHALLENGE PARTIES OFFERING 'SAME AGAIN'
The Conservatives will contest the North Down constituency in the forthcoming Assembly election in order to offer a “genuine, credible alternative to the clapped out, failing parties at Stormont”.
“Never before has the need for fresh, issue led politics in Northern Ireland been so pressing”, said Frank Shivers, the Conservatives’ lead campaigner in North Down. “The Renewable Heat Incentive finally crashed the Assembly, but it was caused by a deeper, more enduring problem with parochial, sectarian parties, who simply want to waste more and more taxpayers’ money, without any real plan to improve the economy or reform services”.
“The DUP and Sinn Fein epitomise that attitude, but all the current parties at Stormont share it to some extent and they're taking people for fools by asking them to vote for the 'same again'. The Conservatives are standing in North Down and other seats in Northern Ireland to offer voters a genuine alternative, focussed on creating jobs, reforming health and delivering better, more efficient public services. Nationally, the UK has the top performing economy in the developed world, thanks to competent government. People in Northern Ireland deserve that type of leadership, and they can do something about it by voting Conservative, and giving the failed Stormont parties their marching orders”.
