Tory Brexiteer proposals pure fantasy – Hazzard

12 September, 2018 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has criticised as pure fantasy the latest proposals from extreme right Tory Brexiteers.


The South Down MP commented:


“These proposals show again that the Tories do not care about Ireland or the effects that any Brexit deal will have on the Irish people. 

"They are not designed to offer a solution but result from the civil war raging internally within the British Conservative Party.


“These proposals are a rehash of the unacceptable and already rejected and failed notion that a technological border can be put imposed post Brexit. They are pure fantasy with no attempt to set out how they can actually be achieved.


“It is interesting but not surprising to note that there is absolutely no reference to rights, to freedom of movement or to the role of the European Court of Justice in these proposals. 


“Sinn Féin has consistently called for the protection of rights and respect for the democratic will of the people of the North of Ireland to remain within the European Union.


“In reality, these proposals are nothing more than bluster from the hard right Brexiteers.”
