Villiers should butt out - Adams

8 July, 2016 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD commenting on British Secretary of State Theresa Villiers rejection of an all-Ireland Forum to coordinate the response to Brexit said:

“The Brexit vote – which Theresa Villiers campaigned for – presents significant challenges for the people of the island of Ireland. Having contributed to the current crisis Theresa Villiers has no right to dictate to the Irish government and the rest of us how we should respond.

Ms Villiers lost the Brexit vote in the North. She should butt out. A National Forum is the right approach for all the people of Ireland – North and South ,if we are to minimise the likely damage that Brexit will bring with it.”
