O’Neill responds to Johnson’s PM speech
Responding to Boris Johnson’s first speech as British Prime Minister, Leas Uachtarán Shinn Féin Michelle O’Neill said:
“We will speak to Boris Johnson later and will tell him there is no good Brexit.
“The DUP don’t speak for the majority of people and businesses in the north who voted to remain and are opposed to a reckless no deal Brexit which jeopardises jobs, trade and political progress.
“We will also raise with him the ongoing talks process and efforts to restore the Assembly and Executive and the need to end the continued denial of citizens’ rights.
“The British government’s approach must change if we are to successfully deliver the restoration of power-sharing based on rights, respect and equality.”
