May Needs To Bring More To Brexit Talks Than Dreams - David Cullinane TD

17 November, 2017 - by David Cullinane TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Brexit David Cullinane TD has said today that the Tory government must deliver on no return to a border on the island of Ireland.

Speaking today, Deputy Cullinane said:

"Honey words and hollow promises from Theresa May and Boris Johnson do not wash when set against the stated position of the British Government."They are engaged in fantasy politics and are without credibility.

"They say that the North will leave the European Union but there will be no hardening of the border. 

"They say the North will leave the customs union and single market but they claim it will have no impact on trade and the all-island economy.

"They say they will protect the Good Friday agreement, but are supporting the Good Friday Agreement leaving the legal framework of the European Union."Any commitments given to move on from phase one need a solid basis.

"We cannot have a situation arise whereby a vague and non-binding formula of words proffered by the Tories is accepted as sufficient progress.

"Both the Taoiseach and the Minister for Foreign Affairs must hold firm and use the veto on the talks unless the interests of the people of Ireland are addressed."
