Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has said the upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity to reject the reckless Tory/DUP Brexit and build support for Irish unity.
Speaking after his selection as Sinn Féin candidate for Upper Bann, John O’Dowd said:
“The upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity to reject the reckless Tory/DUP Brexit and build support for Irish unity.
“Two years ago, when the last Westminster election was called, our message was that our all-Ireland economy and the Good Friday agreement needed to be protected.
“Since then, we have seen nothing but chaos and dysfunction coming from a Parliament that is actively working against the interests of citizens here.
“Sinn Féin is ready to fight an election and to seize the opportunity to oust Brexiteer DUP MPs.
“Given the catastrophe that Westminster is attempting to force upon our island – it is vital that we continue to show Dublin, Europe and the world that we reject Brexit, borders and the DUP.”
