Sinn Féin MEP has said it is clear the wheels are starting to come off the British government’s Brexit agenda.
Martina Anderson said:
“Remarks made by the Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney at the Mansion House in London reveal what we have known all along, that Brexit is bad for the economy.
“Mark Carney told the assembled crowd of bankers and merchants, and the British Chancellor, that there is ‘weaker real income growth’ as a result of Brexit.
“It is clear that the uncertainty over the disastrous Tory Brexit agenda is having a negative impact on markets, deterring investors and putting jobs in jeopardy.
“Sinn Féin have brought forward a credible alternative to Brexit with our case for the north to have designated special status within the EU and we have been building support for that across Ireland and across Europe.
“We now need to see the Irish government demanding special designated status for the north within the EU in the current Brexit negotiations.”
