The Chairperson of the European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) Donal Lyons has warned that the economy ‘doesn’t run on bravado’ following a leaked report which suggested the Northern Ireland economy would take a 12% hit if there is no deal between the UK and EU.
The outgoing European Movement NI Chair has warned there is a ‘very serious risk, given yet another failure by the UK Government to clarify its own negotiating position, that UK-EU relations will be badly damaged and that the island of Ireland will bear the brunt of the punishment for this’.
The European Movement in Northern Ireland has responded to reports that an internal EU paper has suggested that the avoidance of a hard border on the island of Ireland ‘effectively requires Northern Ireland remaining in the single market and the customs union’.
The European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) has said the speech by the British Prime Minister in Florence on 22 September did not put forward any ideas to deal with the border on the island of Ireland as the UK leaves the Customs Union.
The European Movements in UK and Northern Ireland have responded to the British Government’s position paper which outlines the UK’s position on addressing the ‘unique circumstances of Northern Ireland and the land border with Ireland’.
European Movement NI has welcomed suggestions proposed by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to mitigate some of the worst excesses if a ‘Hard Brexit’ is imposed on Northern Ireland. EMNI had argued a ‘Hard Brexit’ is in contravention to the expressed wishes of the people of Northern Ireland, and that there is now no clear mandate for this. Ian Parsley,
