Clare Bailey MLA

Boris Johnson gaslighting rather than negotiating

Wednesday 02 October 2019

In response to Boris Johnson’s conference speech Clare Bailey MLA said: 

“The latest UK proposal says that the way to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland is to create two hard borders. 

“The ridiculous nature of the proposal shows that Boris Johnson is not negotiating with the EU in good faith nor is he looking for a workable solution.

“The Prime Minister is using gaslighting techniques in a crude attempt to blame the EU in the event of a UK crash out.”

Clare Bailey concluded:

“In the face of political meltdown and division Westminster must act to appoint a care taker Prime Minster to ensure that we don’t crash out of Europe on 31st October.”
