SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood MP has called for a Westminster General Election to remove the Conservative Party from power and install a new Labour led alternative.

Speaking following the resignation of British Prime Minister Liz Truss after 45 days in office, Colum Eastwood MP said:

“Liz Truss’ Tory government shredded its political authority and economic credibility when they promised unfunded tax cuts for the mega-rich while working people were left to a market meltdown that sent mortgage rates through the roof.

“The Conservative Party has no mandate to govern. Moving the deckchairs around the Tory Titanic will not deliver the radical change that people in Northern Ireland need in terms of support from the cost of living crisis, help to address soaring interest rates and the restoration of devolved government.

“It is far beyond time for a change of government in London and a new Labour led administration that will put an end to this disastrous Conservative rule.”
