British Prime Minister cannot rip up her own deal – McDonald

8 March, 2019 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Speaking in response to the British Prime Minister’s speech today, the Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD said:

“Prime Minister May’s speech today offered nothing new. It offered no answers, no solutions, only more stalling tactics.

“For the Tory party, the demands of the Brexiteers rank above the needs of the people and economy of Ireland, North and South.

“Mrs May cannot and will not be allowed to rip up the Withdrawal Agreement and walk away from the backstop.

“Theresa May knows that this is essential to protect our agreements, our economy and the rights of Citizens. It is the absolute bare minimum in that regard.

“It is time to stop the posturing and stand by the agreement as negotiated.”
