Eastwood: Northern Ireland must not be sidelined and silenced on Brexit

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood has said the forthcoming election will offer the electorate the chance elect parties who are capable of working together and who are capable of representing Northern Ireland’s interests when it comes to Brexit. Briefings from the British Government have indicated that Theresa May will this week outline her intention to pursue a hard Brexit - including leaving the single market and the customs union. Mr Eastwood also warned that it could be illegal for the British Government to trigger Article 50 in the absence of functioning institutions in Northern Ireland – he added that the British Secretary of State has no right to speak on behalf of anyone in Northern Ireland.
