Judgement another 'melt down moment' for British government - O'Neill
Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill MLA said today’s judgement by the British Supreme Court represents another ‘melt down moment’ for the British government.
The Mid Ulster MLA said:
“The British Supreme Court's decision that proroguing parliament was unlawful underscores the complete and utter disregard Boris Johnson has for the majority of the people of the north who voted to Remain.
“This represents more of the chaos, dysfunction and mess that we have come to expect from Westminster, the House of Chaos.
“Today’s judgement is another melt down moment for the British government.
“Ireland cannot be collateral damage in this circus – we are focused on protecting the interests of people here from the Tory-DUP crash out Brexit.
“While this farce is playing out in London, our people here are anxiously watching on and they want a deal.
“Our businesses want a deal, our farmers want a deal, our manufacturers want a deal, our workers want a deal and our community and voluntary organisations want a deal.
“If the British government does drag us out of the EU then our the bare minimum protect we need against the catastrophe that is Brexit is the backstop.”
