UKIP NI calls for united unionist against Sinn Féin

UKIP Northern Ireland has called for a united unionist effort in elections to combat the threat for Sinn Féin.

Sinn Féin are trying to associate opposition to Brexit with republicanism and are hoping to capitalise on the death of IRA terrorist, Martin McGuinness and the prospect of the return of direct rule from London to galvanise support.

UKIP councillor for Portadown, Cllr David Jones, said:
Northern Ireland’s position within the United Kingdom is a matter which over-rides the marginal differences which now separate the unionist parties.

It is a matter which all pro-union parties must address in the light of Sinn Fein’s devious attempts to link opposition to Brexit to a vote for a united Ireland.

We believe that this Sinn Fein strategy must be met by a strong resolve to maintain the union by all unionist minded people, whether that resolve is driven by a pro-union sentiment based on national identity or simply on personal economic interests.

Unionism must speak to all people who benefit from being part of the United Kingdom. Remaining part of the UK is the only sensible way forward for the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland, whether in business or on benefits, whether in a public or a private sector job, whether they consider themselves as British or Irish.

People need to vote with their head and remember that Sinn Fein will lead both them and their children to their economic destruction.
