DUP continuing to ignore majority views on Brexit - Anderson

6 May, 2018 - by Martina Anderson MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said the DUP are continuing to ignore the views of the people of the North on Brexit. 

Martina Anderson said: 

"Once again Arlene Foster has shown that she and the DUP are continuing to ignore the views of the people of the north on Brexit. 

"The fact is that the majority of people from the north, from all backgrounds, voted to remain in the EU. 

"Arlene Foster may feel the need to repeat the Tory dogma on Brexit but in doing so she is going against the majority of people in the north. 

"When I meet people from all sectors from across the north it is clear they want to remain in the EU and that is what we are about and it is also what Arlene Foster's boss, Theresa May, should be focused on. 

"The British government need to come up with credible proposals in the current Brexit negotiations which would give effect to the views of the majority of people in the north."
