The decision yesterday by the British Prime Minister Theresa May, to abandon the vote in the House of Commons on the agreed Brexit deal between the UK and the EU, has left Ireland in a very precarious situation with the UK more likely now to leave the EU on the March 29th next - with no deal in place for its withdrawal. That’s the view of the Fianna Fail spokesperson on Brexit, Mayo deputy Lisa Chambers.
The deputy says with or without a deal - Brexit is not good for Ireland but without a deal the impact on Ireland could be catastrophic.
She is now urging the Irish government to intensify its preparations for a potential withdrawal of the UK from the EU without a deal in just a few months time.
Deputy Chambers has been speaking to Midwest News about yesterday’s developments in the House of Commons
