British parliament still debating fantasy Brexit options - Gildernew

25 March, 2019 - by Michelle Gildernew


Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has said the British parliament is still debating fantasy Brexit options and needs to realise there is only one deal on the table. 

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP said: 

"Today the British government and British parliament announced another round of votes, including votes on fantasy Brexit options. 

"This is indicative of the absolute chaos in the British parliament in British political system over Brexit. 

"While the EU has said it has completed its preparations for a no-deal Brexit, the British Parliament is still preparing to debate fanciful deals. 

"They need to realise there is only one deal on the table. 

“The British parliament can debate all the scenarios it wants but the Withdrawal Agreement is the only way to avoid a no-deal Brexit and it is not going to change. 

"And all the while we are heading closer to a disastrous, crash-out Brexit with the dire economic consequences that come with it. 

"They need to accept reality and realise there is only one way to avoid a crash-out Brexit and that is the Withdrawal Agreement."
