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’.
