As someone who is deeply concerned by the determined efforts to extinguish Unionist culture and expression in Mid Ulster... I wanted to take a stand - Gareth Ferguson
Commenting on his selection Gareth said: “I am pleased to have been selected to be the TUV candidate in Mid Ulster.
“As someone who is deeply concerned by the determined efforts to extinguish Unionist culture and expression in Mid Ulster, most recently demonstrated by the Council ban on the sale of poppies, I wanted to take a stand. TUV is the only party which has displayed uncompromising opposition to the Sinn Fein agenda and it is by voting TUV that Unionists can send the clearest message that enough is enough when it comes to the never ending assaults of Republicans on anything remotely British.
“You cannot partner Sinn Fein in government and then act as if you are their opponents at election time..
“With the DUP and UUP now hard to distinguish TUV stands in this election as the real alternative.
“I believe it is time for change in Mid Ulster and it is only TUV which offers people the opportunity of obtaining that.” Jim Allister said:
TUV polled extremely well in Mid Ulster in last year’s elections and I look forward to seeing Gareth build on that in the Westminster poll.”
