Clear that no-deal Brexit will be disastrous - Hazzard
Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said an expert panel is not needed to show how disastrous the impact of a no-deal Brexit will be on the north.
The South Down MP said:
“The British government has now convened a panel of experts to determine the impact of a no-deal Brexit on the north.
“It needn’t have bothered as a range of experts have already given dire warnings of the disastrous impact a no-deal Brexit will have on the north’s economy, our rights and the Good Friday Agreement.
“Despite all these warnings it is obvious that the Tories don’t care about the impact of Brexit on the north.
“While there is no such thing as a good Brexit, a no-deal Brexit can be avoided through the Withdrawal Agreement and the backstop it contains.
“That is the only message the Tories and the British Parliament need to hear.”
