Just say ne

Rather than spend £3billion on repairing the crumbling Houses of Parliament, a new parliament should be created in the north, the Respect candidate for Bradford West, George Galloway, said tonight.

“The idea of spending billions of pounds on holding together the present parliament is a nonsense,” he said. “I’ve been in the present building for almost 30 years and I love it dearly. But what we need is not to patch up and prop up the old, we need to usher in the new. I’d make the grand old mother of all parliaments into a museum and I will campaign to have a new one built in the centre of the country. And that’s on the Leeds-Bradford border.”

Galloway was speaking in a hustings held in Bradford Cathedral.

reassert his position of non-intervention.



“It was wrong to support people trying to overthrow the Nicaraguan government. It was wrong to overthrow the democratically elected government of Guatemala,” he said.



And Maduro has now forgiven the socialist senator from Vermont, instead focusing his criticisms on current Democratic front-runner and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.



“She is part of the Clinton clan, an accomplice of all these policies against Venezuela,” he said, while shaking his head: “Too arrogant, I have to say it, [she is] too arrogant.”



Maduro also emphasized the importance of Clinton's role in the 2009 coup against former Honduras president Manuel Zelaya. “There are emails that prove what Clinton did,” Maduro said.

reunification.

“If Britain votes to leave the European Union then that could have huge implications for the entire island of Ireland and, given all the predictions, would run counter to the democratic wishes of the Irish people,” the Sinn Féin leader said.

McGuinness said the electorate should have the right to vote to “retain a role in the EU.”

The largest unionist force in Northern Ireland, the Democratic Unionist party, is backing the campaign to leave the EU. However, the Ulster Unionist party’s ruling executive voted last week to support David Cameron’s calls for a vote to remain in the EU in the June referendum.

Northern Ireland secretary Theresa Villiers has joined the campaign in favour of leaving the EU.

A border poll is highly unlikely to be granted by London even if the UK leaves the EU after the referendum. Yet even if one was held, successive opinion polls in Northern Ireland have shown a substantial majority in the region favour remaining within the UK.

Dissident republican critics of Martin McGuinness have pointed out that any border poll would only be held within the confines of Northern Ireland, which they regard as an “artificial” or “partitionist” entity created out of the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty.

The dissidents and in particular the 1916 Societies have launched an island wide petition demanding that any border poll be held in both the Republic and Northern Ireland.

This runs counter to the key principles within the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, an internationally recognised treaty that ensures any vote on constitutional change is only held within Northern Ireland.
