Letters to the Editor

At the time of writing, the Tories and the Labour Party are within 10pc of each other in the latest opinion polls and no doubt as the UK election gets closer there is every possibility the Labour Party could narrow the gap.

If the Conservatives are to win again with a small majority, it is important Northern Ireland MPs are there to inflict defeat upon the government at every opportunity when Prime Minister Theresa May faces a backbench rebellion.

The Tory party is responsible for Brexit, benefit sanctions and cuts, education cuts, NHS privatisation and cuts, higher tuition fees and the continual blocking of funding for legacy inquests in Northern Ireland. This is not a government that should be given a free hand.
