Time for Taoiseach to show leadership in face of Tory Brexit – O’Neill

Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill said today there is an onus on An Taoiseach to stand up for Irish interests in the face of the unprecedented challenge of a Tory Brexit rather than engage in insulting and nasty commentary. 

Michelle O’Neill said:

“As we face this week into a time of unprecedented challenges, merely days away from the Brexit deadline, the chaos and uncertainty continues.

“The DUP continues to act against the interests of people in the north, the majority of whom voted to remain in the EU.

“Boris Johnson’s reckless and dangerous Brexit plan has been rejected by all the political parties in the north and all our key business and civic sectors apart from the DUP.  

“The British Tory government has abandoned any pretence of acting with the impartiality required by the Good Friday Agreement.

“This is a time for steady heads.

“This is a time for leadership.

“This is a time when the Taoiseach needs to stand up for Irish interests in line with his commitments that nationalists in the north will never be left behind again.

“And it is clearly not a time for An Taoiseach to engage in petty political point scoring and the sort of insulting and nasty commentary usually associated with arch Brexiteers and the DUP.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
