Taking a stand against Tory cuts

We need to stand up for the people who elect us rather than acting in the interests of a Tory elite.

THE unionist and Establishment media have been singing from the same hymn sheet – that the crisis at Stormont is the fault of Sinn Féin (and the SDLP) because they 'cannot take the tough decisions'. On the contrary, the easiest thing would have been to roll over and follow the diktats of the Tory millionaire Cabinet in London to slash the social supports of the most vulnerable in our communities – unionist as well as nationalist.

This is a time when the Executive parties need to stand together to defend our public services particularly in health, education and welfare.

We need to stand up for the people who elect us rather than acting in the interests of a Tory elite.

Sinn Féin fought last month's Westminster election on a platform of:-

  • Protections for the most vulnerable
  •  A workable Budget
  •  Powers to grow the economy and create employment.

All the parties could and should unite around these aims and stand up for our people, our public services and our economy.
