This newsreel places great emphasis on the importance of voting Unionist and maintaining the link with Britain.
Elections in Northern Ireland. Wet street scene at night. View of a large banner on a brick building - 'Every Unionist vote counts. Keep Ulster British.' Close up Unionist election posters - 'Which is your road. United Kingdom, The Republic. Vote Unionist'. A leprechaun is shown crossing the border, calling back to Britannia 'come on wid ye - Follow me. Vote Unionist or sink with Eire'. 'Ulster Holds the Fort. Maintain our Freedom, vote Unionist'. 00:45 View along a terraced street covered in bunting. Close up flag with 'God Save the King'. Crowd grouped round what looks like one of the Unionist Party committee rooms reading posters. Car passes and stops with poster on back. 'Vote for Rodgers'.
