UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall MEP and Regional Leader in Northern Ireland, David McNarry launched the UKIP manifesto for the forthcoming assembly elections on May 5th today.
UKIP candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill gave comments after the event.
Mr Parkhill said: “The parties of old have failed us. They have deprived and neglected East Londonderry and indeed the entire country. They visit our doorstep at every election asking for our votes, yet do nothing to warrant them.
We in UKIP believe that this isn’t good enough. We offer a real alternative and a real voice of opposition. UKIP is the vehicle for real change, for real people’s politics. It is the way to reject and overcome the self-interest and elitism of the old parties who have no regard for, or care little about, the tough problems people and families are facing.
The previous assembly made up of the old parties failed to deliver for the people where it really matters – in job creation, growing the economy, funding our education system, funding our NHS, repairing our roads, and they are failing to provide a brighter future. Our manifesto launched today, details how my party and I would seek to address and solve these key issues, over the next 5 years.
Today’s message is – vote UKIP for new and better politics which puts the voter at the heart of things, puts voters’ interests first and does not take voters for granted.”
