Johnson has ‘stupid Brexit fantasy’

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has warned British prime minister Boris Johnson that his “stupid, dangerous” Brexit fantasy will not become “Ireland’s nightmare” as she accused him of risking the future of Northern Ireland.

“Boris Johnson follows a fantasy in which the rights and interests of the Irish people can be readily cast aside. It is time to call Mr Johnson’s fantasy what it is — profoundly stupid and immeasurably dangerous.

“As October 31 approaches and the pressure mounts, neither Taoiseach Leo Varadkar nor Michel Barnier can blink in the face of Tory intransigence.

Ms McDonald also said that despite the ongoing stand-off over the backstop, the DUP must not be allowed to “veto” any potential breakthrough Brexit deal.

"They’re not green protections or orange, it’s not a nationalist or a unionist demand.

Responding to repeated calls from Fianna Fáil and others for Sinn Féin MPs to take their House of Commons seats, Ms McDonald said, to applause, that if Micheál Martin’s party wants to run candidates on a “go to Westminster” platform they are welcome to do so.
