SDLP link puts unionist Labour supporters off

recent violence in Belfast over parades illustrates how shamefully the Labour Party has abandoned people in Northern Ireland by refusing to organise here.

Labour prefers to support the SDLP, which is committed to a united Ireland, rather than offering voters a centre-left platform.

In contrast, the Conservative Party is committed to a genuinely shared future in Northern Ireland and playing a full role in transforming politics here for the better, through NI Conservatives.

David Cameron has stressed his dedication to supporting politics which move beyond traditional orange and green divisions and give voters a meaningful say in the parliament at Westminster.

Labour has been cowardly in opting out of engaging with people in Northern Ireland.

Conservatives are the only mainstream national party prepared to contribute towards making the province better.
