British government must deliver proper investment in our public services – Baker

Sinn Féin MLA Danny Baker has said the British government needs to properly invest in our public services and end the cycle of cruel cuts. 

The West Belfast MLA said: 

“The crisis facing many of our community and voluntary groups including youth organisations resulting from a culmination of lost EU funds and Tory Budget cuts is deeply concerning. 

“Successful voluntary youth organisations have been informed by the Education Authority that they are unable to confirm funding will continue from May 2023. 

“This places the future of some youth clubs at stake. 

“Our public services have been left at the mercy of an unadulterated Tory Budget with no local ministers at the wheel to take spending decisions to protect our people and businesses from the worst impacts.

“The British government must deliver proper investment in our public services so these groups can plan and support our young people. 

“We need an Executive up and running with local ministers in place and parties working together to protect vital community services and to support our children and young people against savage Tory cuts.”

This Government is like the last guest at a party who has worn out their welcome but still won't go.

Be very clear: The day is coming when they will have to face the verdict of the people.

So when a General Election is called, vote for hope, vote for change and vote this failed…

This was the time to call a general election, but the government didn’t have the guts to call one.

We need change like never before. We need a new government that will put workers, families, and community first.

It’s time for new people with new ideas.  It’s time for change.

‘Recognition of a Palestinian state will happen’. Welcome words from @MichealMartinTD but falls short of a firm declaration.
There may be no Palestine left to recognise unless Ireland & international community act decisively and immediately. No more delays.
