Quote of the day 9th November 2020
“This is an unacceptable situation for us to be in, especially so late in the process.”
(Arlene Foster & Michelle O'Neill, extract from joint letter signed by the DUP & Sinn Fein leaders -
- No, you didn't read that incorrectly, a joint letter from the leaders of the Democratic Unionist Party and Sinn Fein, to the European Commission, highlighting concerns about the implications of the EU's Brexit negotiating position in respect of proposed checks on food supplies intended for supermarkets in Northern Ireland entering the province from the rest of the United Kingdom. A thread about this can be found here.)
I hope the EU understands enough about Northern Ireland to realise that if your position on a Northern Ireland issue results in the DUP and Sinn Fein sending you joint letters of concern, tt might be a really good idea to have another look at their concerns.
