British Prime Minister driving headlong toward no-deal Brexit - Hazzard
Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said it is clear that British Prime Minister is driving headlong towards a disastrous no-deal Brexit.
The South Down MP said:
"In a letter sent by British prime minister Boris Johnson to all permanent secretaries about preparations for Brexit it is clear he is driving headlong towards a no-deal Brexit.
"Despite platitudes about wanting a deal, his policies are all now directed towards a no-deal Brexit, regardless of the obvious disastrous impact it will have on all sections of society.
"The Tory Brexiteers and their DUP allies are repeatedly ignoring the dire warnings from all sectors of just how bad a no-deal Brexit would be and are pressing ahead despite the consequences.
"The local cheerleaders for Brexit cannot continue with their heads in the sand while the voices against a no-deal Brexit get louder and louder."
