Election an opportunity to vote for a different future - O’Neill
Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O'Neill said the upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity to reject the DUP, reject the Tories and reject the destructive role of Westminster on the north of Ireland.
Michelle O'Neill said:
"This election is about our future.
“It is a welcome opportunity for the people of the north to have their say on the looming disaster of Brexit.
"It is a chance to reject the DUP and the Tories, to reject Brexit and the Westminster chaos and its destructive influence on the north of Ireland.
"Sinn Féin has strong candidates who work tirelessly on behalf of their constituents, and we stand ready to fight this election.
“Sinn Féin has successfully made the case to the Irish government and Europe that the north’s special circumstances needed to be recognised to protect our economy against the Brexit catastrophe, to avoid any hardening of the border and to protect the Good Friday Agreement.
“The DUP have ignored the democratic wishes of the people of the north, of business, of farmers, of retailers. The people of the north did not consent to Brexit.
“There is no good Brexit for Ireland.
“Westminster is in chaos. It has no answers and no solutions.
“The Brexit debacle has shown that Westminster cannot, has not and will never act in the interests of the people of the north.
“Your interests in this election are best served by voting Sinn Féin for a different future by sending a clear message to the British government that we want control of our own future through a referendum on Irish unity."
