Theresa May has called this election to re-enforce last year's

0:00:170:00:21

referendum result, to drag us out of Europe against our will,

0:00:210:00:26

to build barriers and borders across this island.

0:00:260:00:30

Well, let's send her a very clear message.

0:00:300:00:33

Vote for the most pro-European party on these islands.

0:00:330:00:38

Vote for the party that will turn up and vote against Brexit and

0:00:380:00:41

work against Brexit.

0:00:410:00:43

Don't let them build barriers and borders across this island.

0:00:430:00:47

I'm deeply concerned about the British Government's decision

0:00:530:00:57

to leave the European Union. The European Union and the European

0:00:570:01:00

single market has been very good for our economy in Northern Ireland.

0:01:000:01:04

Cross-border business will also be affected and that in turn

0:01:040:01:10

will reduce jobs here.

0:01:100:01:11

European Union membership has helped all of us in terms of funding,

0:01:200:01:24

the island economy, and the peace process.

0:01:240:01:27

The SDLP want those benefits to remain for all of us.

0:01:270:01:30

That's why we have proposed the best answers to Brexit's problems by

0:01:300:01:34

using and developing the Good Friday Agreement to its full potential.

0:01:340:01:38

Brexit isn't just about hard borders, it's about influencing

0:01:450:01:49

government to develop opportunities for our farmers, our fishermen,

0:01:490:01:53

and jobs for our young people in the tourism and hospitality sectors.

0:01:530:01:57

To do that, we need to put pressure on government to lower VAT on

0:01:570:02:01

tourism products, to bring more apprentices into the catering

0:02:010:02:05

industry and to ensure that more money flows into tourism projects

0:02:050:02:09

in rural economies to develop jobs for all our young people.

0:02:090:02:14

This Tory government is preparing to take more and more powers

0:02:220:02:25

away from Stormont.

0:02:250:02:27

Their austerity ideology is driving more families into poverty

0:02:270:02:31

and into food banks.

0:02:310:02:33

SDLP MPs have successfully defeated Tory welfare cuts by taking

0:02:330:02:38

their seats in Westminster.

0:02:380:02:40

We are the only local MPs fighting for fairness.

0:02:400:02:44

The British Government has already said it intends to abandon

0:02:510:02:55

crucial subsidies for our farmers.

0:02:550:02:57

We must not allow another Conservative government to

0:02:570:02:59

devastate our rural way of life.

0:02:590:03:02

Only SDLP MPs will take a stand.

0:03:020:03:04

Don't let them build barriers across this island.

0:03:170:03:20

Don't let them drag us out of Europe against our wishes.

0:03:200:03:24

If you want to stop them, you have to come out and vote against them.

0:03:240:03:28

If you want to stop them, you have to vote for people who will

0:03:280:03:32

actually turn up and vote against them.

0:03:320:03:34

If you want to stop a hard Brexit on this island, vote SDLP.
