Maskey challenges People before Profit over support for leaving EU

28 April, 2017 - by Paul Maskey


Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has challenged People before Profit candidate Gerry Carroll on his support for leaving the EU.

The West Belfast MP said:

 “Gerry Carroll and People Before Profit are attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of people in West Belfast.

“People before Profit actively supported leaving the EU and Gerry Carroll was triumphant in the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum result, despite the devastating consequences that will bring for working class communities and also the very real prospect of a hard border with checkpoints.

“In the Assembly Gerry Carroll and People before Profit refused to support a motion calling for special designated status for the North within the EU.

“People before Profit also refused to back designated status for the North when Sinn Féin raised it in the Dáil. 

“Like the DUP and the Tories they have ignored the wishes of the people of the North who voted to remain in the European Union. 

“Gerry Carroll knows his support for leaving the European Union flies in the face of the overwhelming 74% remain vote in west Belfast. 

“He must think people have short memories over his party’s stance.

“Gerry Carroll needs to let the people of West Belfast know the answer to this question. 

"If the EU referendum was held again tomorrow, would Gerry Carroll vote to remain?”

"If the EU referendum was held again tomorrow, would Gerry Carroll vote to remain?”
