“Northern Ireland voters will have the opportunity to vote for a strong team of UKIP candidates in May’s Assembly elections. They will have the opportunity to vote for a nationally relevant party, linking Northern Ireland more closely to the great issues of the day in the rest of the United Kingdom. 

"UKIP is much more than a Party – UKIP is a cause – a very worthwhile cause, which I and many here believe in.  It’s a cause for people and it’s a cause that many are responding to in good faith. 

"I am very proud of the UKIP Candidates Team asking for a number 1 vote at these Stormont Assembly Elections. A better bunch of dedicated, hardworking and determined people you couldn’t ask for. Our team of candidates offer a politics based on the needs of the people. Your interests are the same as theirs.

"On May 5th, the people of Northern Ireland will have a chance at REAL Change. UKIP is a genuine alternative to the parties and the politics of old that has continually failed us.
