Speaking up for Yorkshire: Yorkshire Party launches manifesto

The Yorkshire Party have launched our 2017 General Election manifesto for a fairer, stronger and more prosperous Yorkshire.

Leader of the Yorkshire Party, Stewart Arnold, explained;
"The transfer of real and meaningful powers from London to Yorkshire is the key to a better economy, better education, better housing and better democracy.

"It won't come as a surprise that the setting up of a Yorkshire parliament is at the centre of our Manifesto. We think this would invigorate the often stale, tribal politics we have in Yorkshire and at the same time allow people to set their own priorities and help unleash the huge potential we have in the county."

"Brexit was a defining moment in our politics but there are so many other important issues in Yorkshire today - education, health and social care, our crumbling infrastructure and our relationship with the rest of the UK. Our manifesto addresses all of those key issues, not from an ideological point of view, but in terms of what is best for Yorkshire."

Members of the Yorkshire Party gathered on the steps of Wakefield Cathedral to celebrate the launch of the Yorkshire Party's 2017 General Election Manifesto: Speaking Up for Yorkshire.

    Well why not vote for these? 5 million people in Yorkshire. 5 million in Scotland 3 million in Wales 1.8 million in northern Ireland who would have the biggest say. Time we started to look after ourselves and our superb diverse county and qualities. Fed up with all the squabbling between the labour and the conservatives.
