Yorkshire Party to fight December election

Following the news that MPs have backed a General Election on Thursday December 12th 2019, the Yorkshire Party has announced that it will be fighting the upcoming General Election.
Chris Whitwood, the Leader of the Yorkshire Party said "Yorkshire deserves better. From education to housing, Yorkshire is consistently let down by Westminster. Westminster's inability to function has meant key issues for people in Yorkshire have not been addressed. We simply cannot carry on like this.

"The Yorkshire Party is different. We will stand up for Yorkshire on the national stage and hold any Government to account should it fail to address the major inequalities between Yorkshire and other areas of the country. We will invest in our crumbling transport infrastructure that is costing Yorkshire millions. We will fight to bring powers back from Westminster so that we can decide our own future for our own communities. We know Yorkshire's priorities. Westminster doesn't.

"This election gives the people of Yorkshire a clear choice. Do we stick with the failed policies of the old Westminster Parties that have failed to deliver for Yorkshire, or do we take control of our destiny at the heart of a re-United Kingdom and decide our future for ourselves? The Yorkshire Party has a positive message we will be taking to the people of Yorkshire and we look forward to exposing the failures of the main parties. We know that Westminster isn't working and that Yorkshire deserves better. We will ensure that Yorkshire is heard."

The Yorkshire Party fought the 2017 General Election and was the sixth most voted for party in England. In 2019 the party won councillors in North and East Yorkshire and secured over fifty-thousand votes in the European Elections.
