May cannot ignore the reality of the Remain vote in the North - McGuinness

23 October, 2016 - by Martin McGuinness


Speaking in response to the comments of British Prime Minister, Theresa May, in advance of the meeting tomorrow between the British Government and the leaders of Scotland, Wales and the Northern Executive Martin McGuinness MLA said:

“Theresa May cannot ignore the reality that the people of the North voted to remain in the EU or the enormous consequence of Brexit for the North.

“Any attempt to drag the North out of the EU represents a fundamental change in the constitutional position and an undermining of the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement. 

“I will make clear in the meeting with the British Prime Minister and the leaders of Scotland and Wales the democratic imperative to recognise and respect the vote in the north to remain in the EU in the upcoming negotiations process.” Crioch/ends
