Ordinary people paying price for Tory chaos – Hazzard

Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said people in the north are ‘paying the price’ for Tory chaos and told the British government to stop giving cover to the DUP to block a government being formed.

The South Down MP said:

“Ordinary people and businesses in the north are paying the price from the uncertainty and instability caused by Tory power struggles and chaos at Westminster.

“The Tories’ determination to undermine the Protocol, break International Law and attack the Good Friday Agreement demonstrates the contempt they have for people here. 

“It’s unforgivable that the British government is giving cover to the DUP to block an Executive being formed and prevent money being spent to help workers and families who are struggling to heat their homes and put food on the table.

“The Protocol is working. Our businesses are benefitting from the opportunities afforded by unique dual market access to create jobs and expand.

“The British government should stop giving cover to the DUP to block an Executive being formed and work with the EU in the negotiations to find solutions.”
