Uachtarán Shinn Féin Mary Lou McDonald said the future of Ireland will be decide on the island of Ireland, not at Westminster.
Speaking at the launch of the Sinn Féin election manifesto in Derry today, Mary Lou McDonald said:
“In this election I am asking people to come out and support Sinn Féin candidates because we have a shown that we are a national party with international influence.
“We have used that influence to make sure there will be no hardening of the border, no unionist veto, and that the Good Friday Agreement would be protected.
“We have worked with the EU, in Brussels, in Dublin and in London, and with our friends in Washington to protect jobs, protect agriculture, to protect workers and to protect communities.
“There are some who claim they will go into Westminster and stop Brexit. That’s not going to happen.
“The truth is that no Irish MP, whether nationalist or unionist, will decide the matter of Brexit.
“Our future will be decided on the island of Ireland and by the people of Ireland.”
