East Londonderry TUV candidate Jordan Armstrong has commented on the response he has received from his campaign trail.
“As a husband and a father of two children, this election campaign has given me a focus on the potential opportunities I can provide for my family and many other families across Northern Ireland. It has also given me a good sense of the electorate’s mood about our current political situation.
“Many families yearn for our political system to work, to prevent the never ending crisis and to deliver on the promises in party manifestos. They have clearly recognised that the current political structures are unfit for purpose, dysfunctional and are only destined to fail. They must be fundamentally changed to allow a prosperous future for our children, to enable our economy to grow, to adequately fund our education sector and to tackle the severe problems within the NHS.
“TUV have been the trailblazers for reform, seeking a durable and sustainable government that delivers for all in Northern Ireland. A dysfunctional Government leads to a broken economy. With your help we can end the never ending political crisis, enough is enough!
“The electorate know where TUV stands and that we tell it as it is.
“Our vision is to demand that the electorate are given their basic democratic right, the right to vote a party out of government and the right to an opposition. This is the only viable solution, and we will not settle for anything less. The current system hasn’t work, won’t work and will never work.
“Without having strong foundations it is inevitable that we will see the never ending crisis come before us time and time again. Your vote can change this.
“The TUV are clear, we will not go into government with terrorists. SF who are still inextricably linked to the IRA, other parties try to hide away from this uncomfortable truth. The IRA murdered again, so called decommissioned weapons are still active and the IRA Army council controls the moves of SF.
“The TUV have been the authentic voice of opposition at Stormont whilst exposing the abuse of taxpayer’s money and shinning the spotlight into to corners where no other party has dared. While NHS budgets are tight, you’re paying £15million on winning and dinning for government departments, £400,000 on photographers, £130million on useless North/South Bodies and sadly the squander goes on. The abuse of taxpayer’s money must cease! Make your vote send that message.
“Many people have spoken on the doorsteps about the great job Jim is doing and we need more to support him. This election you can do just that and think of the potential change multiple TUV MLAs could deliver.
“Voting for the same old parties will only ensure more of the same. It is you who will suffer for the failure of Stormont. After casting your vote on the 5th of May, let’s make it a day were you can honestly say, “I’ve voted for a change that I’ll notice.”
“If people are happy with what they have got then they will return the same faces. If they want change that they’ll notice, if they want straight talking and principled politics, then they will shake things up by voting Armstrong 1.”
