The traditional parties have failed our public services, not delivering the long-promised multi-year budget to provide our schools and hospitals with the long-term financial certainty they need. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, we need to ensure that people and communities are given the investment and resources needed to rebuild and recover.

Time and again, traditional parties have shown us that they are not equipped to deal with crisis. The politics of deadlock and division will not address the cost-of-living crisis, the waiting list crisis and the housing crisis.

It’s time to pay our healthcare workers a fair wage. It’s time to put victims and survivors at the heart of the reform of our justice system. It’s time to end the segregation of our schools, and to invest in our arts sector. It’s time to put people back at the heart of decision-making.

It’s time for politicians to deliver on the issues that matter.
