Clare Bailey MLA

Brexit process staggering from farce to fiasco

Wednesday 13 March 2019

Green Party leader Clare Bailey MLA has said that the Brexit process is “staggering from farce to fiasco.”

The South Belfast MLA said: “Theresa May’s defeat last night was predictable but shows that Westminster is staggering from farce to fiasco with 16 days to go until we exit the European Union.

“The no deal Brexit plans published by the government today are ridiculous – the agri-food sector is warning of the disastrous economic implications of these plans.

“The Brexiteer rhetoric was about taking back control of our borders – yet under these plans any semblance of control is relinquished.

“It’s clear that a People’s Vote is the only answer to the current situation.”
