Mr Parsley stated:
“That youth turnout consists of many people who feel their future was stolen from them by that referendum outcome, in which youth turnout was markedly lower.
“The outcome puts in serious doubt whether there is in fact a majority in the UK for Brexit at all. Should the new UK Government not take this reality seriously, there will be a serious doubt as to its very legitimacy.
“This means the debate on Brexit should be re-opened, with the full engagement of those young people now turning out to vote.”
“I would like to pay tribute to the pro-EU Northern Ireland MPs who have lost their seats. Their losses will be keenly felt. As Northern Ireland’s only Remain MP left on the benches, we look forward to working with Lady Hermon, and indeed all MPs who wish to work with us, in making Northern Ireland a forward looking, dynamic place at the heart of Europe.”
