DUP's Dodds: Party's principled objections to the EU Withdrawal Agreement remains
Following his meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party’s (DUP) deputy leader Nigel Dodds said that the Party's principled objections to the EU Withdrawal agreement remained and added that he pressed PM to deliver on her commitments to deal with the backstop.
"The Irish Republic's 'no deal' preparations published just before Christmas have laid bare the nonsense propaganda about a hard border. No one wants a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. Indeed, its becoming clearer by the day that no one is ever going to construct such a border. With this clarity emerging in London, Dublin and Brussels, there is evidently no need for the aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement which have been so vigorously opposed by a broad cross section of the House of Commons."
