British government must respect Remain vote - Gildernew

6 October, 2016 - by Michelle Gildernew

Sinn Féin MLA Michelle Gildernew has said the British government must respect the right of the majority of the people in the North to remain in the EU. 

Ms Gildernew said; 

"British Secretary of State James Brokenshire visited Moy Park today as part of his phoney consultation on the impact of the EU referendum. 

"But his comments on Brexit to date will do nothing to allay the fears of EU workers at Moy Park or anywhere else, nor the concerns of the wider population. 

"James Brokenshire needs to realise that the people of the North have already had their say on the EU in the only consultation that matters on June 23, and they voted to remain and that must be respected."
