British on Brexit – no plan or care about consequences, says Adams

“There is a need for the Irish Government – and all parties – to stand up for our national interests in all discussions with the British Government and at the European Union.

“IT IS increasingly clear that the British Government has neither a plan for Brexit or a care as to how it impacts on Ireland,” Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams TD says.

“The British Government has claimed that an agreement has been reached, with the Irish Government, for immigration control into Britain to be in place in Irish ports and airports.

"I have twice raised this directly with the Taoiseach and on both occasions he has failed to answer. This is unacceptable.”

The Sinn Féin leader adds:

“There is a need for the Irish Government – and all parties – to stand up for our national interests in all discussions with the British Government and at the European Union.

“That means respecting and giving effect to the vote in the North to ‘Remain’ in the EU.

“Sinn Féin has called for and supported the Taoiseach in developing an All-Ireland Forum on Brexit.

“The Taoiseach needs to make clear that the Civic Dialogue will identify and chart a course to ensure that the whole island remains within the EU and to minimise the impact on our nation of the British decision to leave the EU.”
