Johnson visits Dublin – Jenny Chapman comments

Jenny Chapman MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Minister, commenting on Boris Johnson’s visit to Dublin, said:

“Boris Johnson’s cavalier attitude towards a no deal Brexit represents a very real threat to stability in Northern Ireland.

“The fact Johnson has not visited the Irish border, either as Foreign Secretary or Prime Minister, explains why he does not understand the complexities of the issue and has previously compared it to boundaries between different London boroughs.

“We need to get the Tories’ disastrous No deal off the table, then we need a General Election and a Labour government to protect the Good Friday Agreement, restore power, and invest in communities and public services in Northern Ireland.”
