Latest Tory Brexit proposals show detachment from reality - Hazzard

24 June, 2019 - by Chris Hazzard


Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said the latest Brexit proposals from the British government once again show how detached the Tories are from the realities of the devastating impact of Brexit. 

The South Down MP said: 

"The latest proposal from the British government's Alternative Arrangements Commission on Brexit shows how detached from reality the Tories are on Brexit. 

"It claims to offer a way of creating a single food zone post-Brexit but has not laid out concrete solutions on how it can be achieved.

"This proposal is yet more window dressing from the British government with no grasp of the details. 

“This is yet another example of the Brexiteers talking to themselves.

"Instead of proposing unworkable alternatives, the Tories should remember they have already negotiated a deal. 

"The Tories and the British parliament need to realise and accept that there is only one deal on the table, the Withdrawal Agreement and the backstop it contains, and that is the only way to avoid a hard border."
