TUV has announced its poll-topping Bannside councillor, Timothy Gaston, will be its candidate in the Westminster election in North Antrim.
In last year’s local elections Cllr Gaston, romped home at the top of the poll in the once staunch DUP stronghold of Bannside.
Commenting on his selection Timothy Gaston, he said: “It will be a great honour to be the TUV standard-bearer in North Antrim, where TUV is very much in the ascendancy, as more and more people come to recognise the worth of the stand and work of our MLA, Jim Allister, and our slate of councillors. TUV is seen as the alternative in North Antrim.
“The status quo is not working. Stormont is a disaster. Westminster has become subservient to Brussels, unable to even control our own borders. Our hospitals, schools and front line services are all fighting for survival. Voting, again, for the local parties of government will bring more of the same. Voting TUV will shake things up.”
