This morning I addressed the European Parliament plenary in Strasbourg, to speak directly to President Tusk, Juncker and Schulz on Brexit.

Farmers, SMEs, ESF Women’s Groups, PEACE Funding Vol & Community sector, ERASMUS young people, R&D universities, Foreign Direct Investment, construction workers, Cross border workers & students and many many more will be adversely affected.

The Democratic Unionist Party decision was reckless and it was wrong – it was a political football to get stronger tie with Britain, hard borders and damage to the all-Ireland economy – BREXIT is the cost of Partition. We can’t afford Partition.
