‘Poots bound by law on implementing ports checks’ – Kearney

Sinn Féin MLA Declan Kearney said Edwin Poots knows very well that his approach to port checks would be in contravention of Executive policy.

The party’s Brexit spokesperson said:

“The Executive is legally obliged to comply with commitments set out in the Withdrawal Agreement and the Protocol.

“The legal requirements arise as a matter of domestic and EU law.

“This includes performing checks and any associated infrastructure at local ports.

“Of course, Edwin Poots has form on these issues. He knows very well that his approach would be in contravention of existing Executive policy and its legal obligations.

“But despite his opposition he is bound by the law, as are all ministers and the civil servants in his department.”

So when a General Election is called, vote for hope, vote for change and vote this failed…

This was the time to call a general election, but the government didn’t have the guts to call one.

We need change like never before. We need a new government that will put workers, families, and community first.

It’s time for new people with new ideas.  It’s time for change.

‘Recognition of a Palestinian state will happen’. Welcome words from @MichealMartinTD but falls short of a firm declaration.
There may be no Palestine left to recognise unless Ireland & international community act decisively and immediately. No more delays.
