Hazzard commends Border Communities against Brexit protest in London
South Down MP Chris Hazzard has commended Border Communities against Brexit for demonstrating against Brexit in London this morning.
Speaking at the event Mr Hazzard said,
“I wish to commend the great work done by Border Communities against Brexit for bringing their protest to the streets of London.
“By setting up a mock check point they have sent a very clear message to the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson that, despite his claims, a border between the North and the South of Ireland cannot be compared to a border between Camden and Westminster.
“What is very clear is that there is no support on the ground for Boris Johnson’s ludicrous comments around the Irish border.
“There is no support or sympathy for David Davies platitudes and policies that point to an unworkable Brexit and there is certainly no support for the return of a hard border in Ireland.”
“It is now time for the British government to respect the democratic mandate expressed by the people of the North of Ireland to remain within the EU.”
