‘DUP recklessness exposed by latest Brexit report’ - Ó Muilleoir

26 March, 2019 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir


The latest evidence demonstrates that the DUP is endangering the economy of the north in its pursuit of a reckless Brexit, Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has said.

The party’s Brexit spokesperson commented:

"The latest report from the Department of the Economy shows once again the negative impact Brexit will have on the economy of the North.

"It shows that the North being dragged out of Europe will lead to lower levels of foreign direct investment (FDI).

"It also points out that the north securing special status would in fact lead to increased level of FDI, something which would actually grow our economy.

“The best outcome for our business community, of course, would be remaining in the EU but the DUP appear intent on dragging us out regardless of the consequences.

"This report once again exposes the fact that the DUP, by supporting the irresponsible pursuit of a reckless Brexit, are endangering the economy on the north.

"They need to step back, listen to the facts, listen to the genuine fears of the business community and abandon their delusional approach."
