Miliband guilty of neglecting Northern Ireland

Published 24/04/2015

THIS week on BBC Breakfast, Ed Miliband declared himself a supporter of the Union.

Mr Miliband believes in the United Kingdom. The Labour Party will fight the SNP because they want break up the UK.

The last time I checked, it is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. But Mr Miliband and the Labour Party believe in the United Kingdom so much, they will not stand for election in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland can have no say in Miliband's plans for a mansion tax, or changes to non-dom status. The British can be trusted to vote for a Labour government - as long as they don't live here. It is time these undemocratic, unrepresentative politicians were held to account.
