DUP’s Jeffery Donaldson claims that the Irish Government is driving us all to a no deal Brexit




DUP MP Jeffery Donaldson has heavily criticised the Irish Government over its handling of policies in regards to Brexit.

Mr Donaldson who was Institute of European Affairs in Dublin, on Thursday evening, claimed that the Taoiseach and the Irish Government have subcontracted Northern Ireland policy to the European Commission.

In scathing speech before an onlooking forum, Donaldson claimed that the Irish Government is driving us to a no deal Brexit.

The DUP MP who reiterated that niether he nor his party want to see a hard border on the island of Ireland, also claimed that the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste have used the sensitive subject of the border as a bargaining chip with the EU.

Although he admitted that there is a clear absence of political institutions in North Ireland, he stated that he believes that the Irish Government should have done more to resolve the issue of the border by entering trilateral talks with Belfast and Westminster.

Mr Donaldson who wants a time limit placed on the proposed backstop told the forum that the Irish Government was set on introducing a backstop that clearly doesn’t have the support of Unionists.

He added that the Irish Government should work harder with those North of the border and Britain to find a solution to the problematic backstop agreement.
