TUV Lagan Valley election candidate Lyle Rea has said he is convinced the UK should leave the EU.
“When the UK last went to the polls to decide if we should stay in what was then the Common Market I voted to leave,” he said. “I have seen nothing in the subsequent years which hasmade me reconsider that vote and the draft deal announced by the Prime Minister certainly doesn’t change my mind.
“ Perhaps most importantly, there will be no change to our open borders policy.
“This will result in continued pressure on essential services like health and education and the wages of local people will continue to be driven down. I look forward, therefore, to not just campaigning in the Assembly election this year but making the case for us to leave the EU.”
