On #BrexitDay it's also important to thank our friends and colleagues in QUB, who have provided support to our events. The clarification and explanations on the #EU and also the #Brexit process provided by @QUBPolicy experts were much appreciated. @DPhinnemore @hayward_katy
While there is nothing to celebrate today itself, we would like to thank all our members who have campaigned for the pro-European cause. We are still here and look forward to working with @emireland and others. #BrexitDay
We would like to thank the staff of the EC Office in Belfast, @EUOfficeNI , for all their support over the years. Today is a sad day for the staff there in the Dublin Rd and NI has greatly benefited from the work they have done in representing us to @EU_Commission. #BrexitDay
Today is a sad day for all those who believe in European cooperation and reconciliation. We leave an organisation that has brought relative peace and relative prosperity to our continent, and enter uncertain times. #BrexitDay
Today, @EU_Commission decided to ask the Court of Justice to impose interim measures ordering Polish gov to suspend the functioning of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court. We remain ready to engage in a constructive dialogue based on fairness and respect with #Poland.
