Theresa May must take the action needed to protect jobs, the economy and avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland – Starmer

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the EU27 adopting guidelines for the future EU-UK relations after Brexit, said:

“Today’s agreement is a step in the right direction but we are still a very long way away from both sides reaching an agreement on what the future relationship will look like.

“Theresa May must now finally drop her reckless red lines and take the action needed to protect jobs, the economy and avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland.”
