Karen Bradley will do anything to push through PM’s botched deal – Tony Lloyd

Tony Lloyd MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on Karen Bradley’s recent article in the Belfast Telegraph in which she appeared to link ongoing PEACE money for Northern Ireland to the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal passing the Commons, said:

“Karen Bradley is showing that she will do anything to push through the Prime Minister’s botched deal. She is willing to use the peace process in Northern Ireland as leverage and some kind of bargaining tool.

“As Northern Ireland Secretary, she should be ashamed. She needs to publicly guarantee funding for the peace process irrespective of the PM’s deal and apologise for such reckless and damaging comments.”
