Sinn Féin Brexit spokesperson David Cullinane TD has accused the British Government of engaging in fantasy politics and presenting unworkable solutions.
Speaking from Leinster House this morning Teachta Cullinane said;
“What we have seen from the British Government this morning is more fantasy politics. They are presenting unworkable solutions just two weeks out from Brexit day.
“On the one hand, they are seeking to undermine the legal protections for Ireland in the form of the backstop while putting forward impractical and unworkable solutions on the other hand.
“Let’s be very clear, this is more of the blame game by the British government.
“They are again cynically using the border and Ireland’s unique circumstances to shift responsibility for their Brexit mess to the EU and the Irish government.
“Sinn Féin’s focus is about protecting the all-island economy, citizens’ rights and the Good Friday Agreement
“Sinn Féin was the only party to launch a Brexit contingency plan.
“We called for a €2billion Brexit stabilisation Fund to support farmers, exporters SMEs and investment in infrastructure.
“Irrespective of whatever Brexit comes we need the government to provide that fund.”
