DUP take its Brexit campaign to London

Published 21/06/2016

The DUP has taken out a major advertisement in a free London newspaper urging voters to support the Brexit campaign.

The ad is an eye catching wrap around in The Metro newspaper - which is read by thousands of commuters in the British capital - and urged "take back control".

The UK is set to go to the polls on Thursday to vote on whether or not it wants to remain a member of the EU.

The DUP is campaigning for a vote to leave.

In the ad, the party lists a series of arguments against remaining in the EU. They also pointed to why they believe getting out is a "better" option.

DUP MLA Mervyn Storey said the ad was a "price worth paying" to get the party's message across.

"We are a national party, we are the fourth largest party in the House of Commons and, clearly, this is a national campaign," he said.

"Northern Ireland has not been on the periphery of this campaign, we in the DUP have been a central player in the Leave campaign and, therefore, it is as conceivable to take that ad in that publication as it is to take it in Northern Ireland."
