Clare Bailey MLA: UK/EU trade deal is nothing to celebrate

Thursday 24 December 2020

Green Party Northern Ireland Leader Clare Bailey MLA gave her reaction to the UK/EU Trade Deal announced today, saying: 

"The interests of the people of Northern Ireland are best served by European Union membership. That's why the majority here rejected Brexit and voted to remain. 

"This deal won't negate the dire consequences of Brexit. Prime Minister Johnson will bluff and bluster as usual but this deal is nothing to celebrate.

"Besides that, let see if the Prime Minister sticks to the terms of the agreement, given his track record of dishonesty and bad faith."
