Unionism Demands More Than Words on the Protocol

Unionism demands more than words on the Protocol

Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:

“Unionists who want to see Northern Ireland’s place as an integral part of the UK restored will be deeply disappointed by Sir Jeffery’s latest statement and repositioning.

“Having repeatedly warned that he would force the Government to make a choice – Stormont or Protocol – he is no longer even saying that.

“By repeatedly making threats about what the DUP will do in response to the Protocol and failing to carry them through, he is not only shredding credibility but strengthening the perception that in time Unionism will come to terms with the Union-dismantling Protocol. Jeffrey Do-Little is a tag the current leader of unionism needs to avoid. 

“To claim that the DUP “will not be implementers of Protocol arrangements” when all the time the Poots’ Posts remain operative would be laughable were the constitutional ramifications not so grave.”

ENDS
