British military Brexit stockpiling highlights disaster of food shortages - Hazzard

26 January, 2019 - by Chris Hazzard


Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said news that British military bases across the world have been stockpiling food in preparation for Brexit highlights the disaster it will be. 

The South Down MP said: 

"It has been reported that British military bases across the world have been stockpiling food and supplies in preparation for a no-deal Brexit. 

"Not only is this yet another acknowledgement from the British government that its reckless Brexit policy will result in food shortages, it also raises questions about the priorities of the Tories.

"And it is clear that people in the north are so far down the list of Tory priorities that we don't even register. 

"We need to see the Irish government and the EU 27 standing firm to protect Irish interests, or agreements and ensure there is no hard border in the face of this disastrous Tory Brexit policy."
