Newry man Michael Savage vows to fill Remain void in Westminster

Local SDLP Westminster Candidate Michael Savage has said the decision by Lady Sylvia Hermon not to contest the election means the need for South Down to return a Remain Candidate who will take their seat is more important than ever.

Speaking to Newry Times, he said, “During the last Parliament, Lady Sylvia was a lone strong voice for the majority of people in the North who voted Remain.

“Her seat is likely now to fall to the DUP and as a result, this makes it essential for the people of South Down to return the only candidate who can wrestle the seat from an abstentionist MP and ensure that a Remain voice is heard from the benches to fight Boris’ Brexit plans.

 

 

“Be under no illusion South Down is a two-horse race and is a straight fight between the SDLP and an MP who won’t take their seat.

“A vote for any other candidate will lead to an abstentionist MP being returned.

 

 

“I will fill the void left by Lady Sylvia if elected by the people of South Down and I will fight Brexit and its negative impact on our economy, our farmers and our hard-won peace.

“I will fight for everyone on the issues that matter to them such as Health, Education, Jobs, Welfare, Farming, Fishing, Infrastructure and Investment.

Councillor Savage added, “South Down needs a strong voice on the green benches and I am the only person who will ensure that voice is heard.”
