Ireland won’t be pushed around by British parliament – Hazzard

29 January, 2019 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said the British parliament needs to realise that it cannot push the people of Ireland around over Brexit. 

Speaking from Westminster, the South Down MP said: 

“What is happening at Westminster today is clearly not in the interests of Ireland. 

“Instead it is all about the right-wing Brextremists of the Tory party who have been allowed to set the agenda. 

“In its desperation, the British government is trying to threaten and intimidate the Irish people with a hard border and an economic cliff edge. 

“They need to realise the days of the British government and British parliament threatening the people of Ireland and pushing them around are over and not coming back. 

“The Irish government and EU need to stand firm against attempts to sabotage what has already been agreed."
