McNarry says there is a policy vacuum among Northern Ireland’s ‘big’ parties
David McNarry MLA, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, has said the policies being put forward by Northern Ireland’s big parties are either non-existent or ‘puny’ to say the least.
“Sinn Fein’s policy seems to be – we will negotiate for £1.5 million from the British Government. What sort of policy is that? There are no big ideas there, just another pushing out of the begging bowl. The DUP say vote for us to make us bigger and we will hold the balance of power at Westminster. That, again, is not a policy. It offers people nothing by way of big ideas or any improvements to their lives. We should not be surprised at this lack of ideas among the big parties. After all, for the past 8 years they have been doing absolutely nothing – apart, that is, from mismanaging our public finances.”
“Nationally, and locally here in Northern Ireland, UKIP is offering people a real chance to change things for the better. With properly costed policies, verified by an independent outside body, UKIP alone of all the parties is offering a new direction and real change for the whole country, the sort of change that will kick start growth in our economy, and see a rediscovery of our national pride and self-confidence.”
