British political system in unprecedented crisis because of Brexit – McCallion

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said the British political system is in unprecedented crisis as a result of Brexit. 

The Foyle MP said: 

“We are now 1,000 days on from the Brexit referendum and there is no more certainty now than there was then. 

“The only thing we no for sure is that there is no such thing as a good Brexit for the north. 

“In that time there has been a litany of resignations from the deeply divided British cabinet and the British Parliament is in absolute chaos. 

“Amid all the votes, motions and amendments there has been absolutely no regard shown for the impact of Brexit on the north and no grasp of the reality on the ground shown. 

“The British political system is now in unprecedented levels of crisis. 

“There is a deal in the table and it’s the only deal on the table. It’s the Withdrawal Agreement and the backstop it contains and it is the only certain way to avoid a crash out Brexit, whether next week or in three months. 

“The uncertainty for our business sector, our farmers and everyone else must end and the Brexiteers need to step back and show some common sense and realism for once.” Ends/Críoch
