Clare Bailey MLA

Parliamentary suspension a “constitutional coup.”

Wednesday 28 August 2019

Green Party NI Leader Clare Bailey MLA has responded to PM Boris Johnson’s bid to suspend Parliament.

Clare Bailey MLA said: “This is an attempt to stage a constitutional coup by Boris Johnson and his band of hard Brexiteers.

“The anti-EU rhetoric at the time of the referendum was about taking back control.

“Right now, there is attempt to take control away from the people and allow a small section of Brexiteers to crash us out of Europe.

“Boris Johnson’s career has been marked out by a series of lies and mistruths.

“To describe the attempt to suspend parliament as anything other than a ploy to secure a no deal Brexit is yet another lie.”
