British government trying to accelerate off the Brexit cliff edge - Hazzard
Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard, has said the British government are trying to accelerate the process of undermining rights and economic security in Ireland with the EU Withdrawal Bill.
The South Down MP said:"By attempting to enshrine a Brexit date into law, the British government is accelerating towards a post-Brexit abyss with no progress made on protecting the rights and livelihoods of citizens in Ireland."With only fantasy solutions suggested to deal with avoiding an EU frontier across Ireland, and struggling in EU negotiations, the British government's Brexit plan is falling apart."Designated Special Status for the north of Ireland within the EU is now needed more urgently than ever to prevent Britain from inflicting serious social and economic damage on the people of Ireland."
