The Wateside councillor said: ““Ardent Brexiteers argue that suspending or cancelling Brexit will erode faith in the democratic process. I disagree.
“But the argument is surely now redundant because faith in British parliamentary democracy is through the floor after another night where they failed to reach a single consensus about the way forward on Brexit.
“This circus of self-interest, sustained by the DUP and spectated by Sinn Féin, has to come to an end. 11 days remain until we are forced from the EU with no deal – the worst case scenario for Northern Ireland, not least for border communities like that of Derry.
“Theresa May must move to withdraw Article 50 to create space and time to reconsider all other options.
“It is increasingly clear that there is no majority for a hard Brexit.
“It is dangerous for people here that we seem to keep advancing slowly in that direction,” she added.
