He said: “An extension or delay, regardless of the length, does not solve Brexit or avoid the possibility of a devastating crash-out.
“It prolongs the chaos in the British parliament and adds to the uncertainty for the business community, the farming sector and everyone else.
“The only thing which will avoid a crash-out Brexit which would drive our economy off a cliff edge is the Withdrawal Agreement.
“The British parliament needs to abandon its delusional belief that there can be any renegotiation of the Withdrawal Agreement and the backstop it contains.
“The Brexiteers in the DUP and Tory party now need to finally realise where this reckless course they are on will lead and take a step back and avoid a disastrous crash-out Brexit,” added the Faughan representative.
