‘British PM showing contempt’ - O’Neill

28 March, 2018 - by Michelle O'Neill

Sinn Féin Vice President Michelle O’Neill has strongly criticised the British Prime Minister Theresa May after it was confirmed she would not be meeting the local political parties during her visit to the North tomorrow.

Michelle O’Neill said: “Theresa May is coming to the North on Thursday yet does not intend meeting the parties.

“However this is no surprise given the majority of Assembly members are pro-remain and support staying within the customs union and single market.

“These are the voices that Theresa May continues to ignore as she and the DUP show blatant contempt for the cross-community majority here who voted to remain.

“Theresa May’s government clearly are not interested in the concerns and interests of people here. Otherwise, they would not be imposing a reckless Brexit and austerity agenda on them while also enabling the DUP’s denial of rights to citizens.”
