British government's Brexit agenda at odds with Good Friday Agreement - O'Dowd

22 January, 2017 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Fein MLA John O'Dowd has said the British government's Brexit agenda is at odds with the Good Friday Agreement. 

Mr O'Dowd said; 

"It is clear that the British government's Brexit agenda is in conflict with the Good Friday Agreement. 

"For the British government to claim otherwise is nonsense. 

"On the issue of the border in particular, the British government won't be in control of what happens and is instead relying on increasingly tired rhetoric. 

"This British government's plans to hollow out human rights legislation is also totally at odds with the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement. 

"Theresa May and her colleagues are totally in the dark on Brexit and it is the Good Friday Agreement and the people of Ireland who will suffer.

"We need to secure designated special status within the EU in order to protect the rights of all Irish citizens."
