British government would prefer no Assembly to one which opposes Brexit - O'Neill

20 April, 2017 - by Michelle O'Neill


Sinn Féin MLA Michelle O’Neill said today there is a growing belief that the British government would prefer no local Assembly to one which stands against the Tories’ Brexit agenda.

Michelle O’Neill said:

“Sinn Féin met with the British Secretary of State James Brokenshire today.

“I told him the British government have done nothing over the course of last seven weeks to achieve an agreement.

“There is a growing belief among nationalists and people who voted to remain that the British government would prefer no local Assembly to one which stands against the Tories’ reckless Brexit agenda.

“It’s clear that the people of the north who voted to remain in the EU are regarded as saboteurs by Theresa May and her clique of Tory Brexiteers. We are no more than collateral damage.

“Theresa May needs to hear clearly from the people of the north that we don’t want Brexit, we don’t want a border and we don’t want Tory cuts and austerity.”
