The European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) – the longest established pro-European organisation in the North- has rejected comments by shadow international trade secretary, Barry Gardiner, that a referendum on the final Brexit deal would cause ‘social unrest’ and instead has called on the British Labour Party to support a Peoples Vote.
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.
Take note! In case of no deal on 12 April for #Brexit the EU is prepared. Know your rights as an EU national living in the UK or a UK national living in an EU country: the EU has published guides on all main topics. #Prepare4Brexit https://t.co/gEkZbavUa7
The House of Commons has taken over a degree of control over the Brexit process: much to the annoyance of the Brexiters. Seems like parliamentary sovereignty is desirable in theory but not in practice?
Not withstanding appalling crisis we’re in #PM fails to deliver leadership or certainty with a Plan B. So we don’t know what #PM will do if it’s #NoDeal V long extension. It’s also clear she will ignore any vote by Parliament that she doesn’t agree with including @peoplesvote_uk
