Day and daily, people tell me that Stormont isn't working for them.

0:00:190:00:24

Bad decisions, badly-timed decisions,

0:00:240:00:27

a total lack of decisions leave them feeling deeply frustrated.

0:00:270:00:31

And rightly so, because it doesn't have to be like this.

0:00:310:00:34

The Ulster Unionist Party understands that life is difficult enough

0:00:400:00:45

without politics making it feel worse.

0:00:450:00:48

Jim Nicholson offers you unmatched experience

0:00:480:00:52

and influence within the European Union.

0:00:520:00:55

In the coming months, he'll do what's right for you.

0:00:550:00:59

The Ulster Unionist Party does what's right for Northern Ireland.

0:00:590:01:03

I'm not waiting around on the Health Minister to act on organ donation.

0:01:030:01:07

I'm progressing my own bill at Stormont to update the law

0:01:070:01:11

and save lives

0:01:110:01:12

by changing the way we sign up to the organ donor register.

0:01:120:01:16

That's why I'm not waiting for the Executive

0:01:160:01:19

to stop the naming of play parks after terrorists.

0:01:190:01:22

I'm bringing forward a bill

0:01:220:01:25

to ensure that never happens again,

0:01:250:01:27

thus doing what's right for Northern Ireland.

0:01:270:01:30

That's why I'm bringing forward legislation to tackle criminality.

0:01:300:01:34

It's the right thing to do for Northern Ireland.

0:01:340:01:36

And that's why I'm planning my own bill on freedom of speech.

0:01:360:01:41

Without it, Northern Ireland will become a place apart

0:01:410:01:43

in the United Kingdom,

0:01:430:01:45

and our economy, our universities

0:01:450:01:48

and our ability to scrutinise local government will all suffer.

0:01:480:01:53

And that's why I'm leading the opposition

0:01:530:01:56

to Sinn Fein's mismanagement of our children's education.

0:01:560:02:01

Northern Ireland's first Education Minister

0:02:010:02:03

wanted a single education system, but was thwarted.

0:02:030:02:07

100 years on, it's time to make it happen.

0:02:070:02:10

It's doing what's right for Northern Ireland.

0:02:100:02:12

The Ulster Unionist Party has a saying:

0:02:120:02:16

"Country first." It means doing what's right

0:02:160:02:19

irrespective of the cost to the party or to any individual politician.

0:02:190:02:23

It's served Northern Ireland well for many years,

0:02:230:02:27

and it's what we need again if we're to really kick on

0:02:270:02:29

for a better economy, education, health and housing.

0:02:290:02:34

It really is no empty promise to say that with your help, we're ready

0:02:340:02:39

and we're willing to once again do what's right for Northern Ireland.
