Davis simply recycling proposals already branded nonsense by EU – Begley

20 May, 2018 - by Órfhlaith Begley


Sinn Féin MP Órfhlaith Begley said today that Tory minister should respect the democratic wishes of the people of the north in the EU rather recycling proposals already branded as nonsense by the EU.

The West Tyrone MP was speaking after British Brexiteer David Davis sneaked in and out of the north today. 

Órfhlaith Begley said:

”The proposals being put forward by David Davies on so-called technological solutions on the border are nothing more than rehashed versions of proposals put forward last August which were dismissed by the EU as fantasy and nonsense. 

"The clock is ticking and the British government need to stop wasting time on unworkable notions and deal with the option already on the table for avoiding physical infrastructure at the border through the north remaining in the customs union and single market. 

"Rather than sneaking in and out of the north again and meeting behind closed doors, Tory ministers should listen to the views of the people of the north who clearly reject the Tory Brexit and want to remain in the single market and customs union.”
