'Deflection cannot hide DUP support for hard Brexit' - Hazzard

13 June, 2019 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said the DUP cannot hide its support for a hard Brexit by trying to blame others. 

The South Down MP said: 

“It is ridiculous for the DUP to claim that the Irish government is somehow responsible for driving Britain towards a no deal Brexit. 

“In reality it is the DUP propping up the British Tories and aligning themselves with the hardliners in the Tories who are competing with each other to deliver the hardest Brexit that is driving us towards a disastrous no deal crash out. 

“They are doing this in total contradiction of the democratically expressed views of the people of the north. 

“The DUP cannot hide their support for a hard Brexit by trying to deflect the blame onto others.”
