Commenting on the votes last night in the House of Commons, UKIP Spokesman for Northern Ireland, Robert Hill said:
“After last night’s vote and the European Union’s response – where they made it abundantly clear that they won’t change one word of May’s Withdrawal Agreement, it should be clear to even the most ardent anti-democratic Remainers that UKIP, the only true Brexit party has been right all along – the Irish Border issue was always a political issue twisted and manipulated by remainers to try and and stop our Exit from the European Union. As we have always said, the backstop is neither wanted or needed.
“The idiotic idea of paying the E.U. £39 Billion for this surrender document should be scrapped altogether, and the democratic will of the British people must be enacted by leaving the shackles of the E.U. and using WTO rules to operate and trade freely as the fifth largest economy with the rest of the World.”
Commenting further, Robert added:
“Roll on 29th March 2019 when we walk away and leave the failing European Union as one United Kingdom. We will have taken back our freedom as an independent, sovereign nation state: Free to make our own laws, free to fish in our own waters and free to trade and co-operate globally with other nations.”
