SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has brought a motion forward to Derry City and Strabane District Council welcoming the campaign for a People’s Vote on the final terms of the Brexit deal.
Cllr Tierney said: “It is no secret that Brexit will be catastrophic for the people of the North.
“No-one here voted to be poorer, no-one here voted for the hardening of the border, no-one here voted for job losses and no-one here voted for the erosion of rights as enshrined by the Good Friday Agreement.
“It won’t be the hard-line Brexiteers of Whitehall that will be worse off after Brexit, rather it will be ordinary people in border communities like that of Derry who will face the greatest obstacles moving forward.
“People here voted to remain, and despite our wishes going unheard, it is imperative we get a say on the final terms of the Brexit deal,” he added.Tags:
