UKIP assembly candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill has welcomed Lord Trimble’s intervention on Brexit.
Commenting, Mr. Parkhill said: “Recently the IN campaign have ramped up their scaremongering and nonsensical drivel with Lord Mandelson making an appearance, claiming Brexit would damage the peace process.
These suggestions are nothing more than mischief and scaremongering from a former European Commissioner.
I welcome the intervention by Lord Trimble, one of the key architects of the Peace Process, who has branded these claims as ‘rubbish’ and highlighted that there is no connection between the European Union and the Peace Process.
It’s common knowledge that The Common Travel Area (CTA) is a travel zone comprising the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands. This agreement began in 1923 and predates membership for either the Republic or United Kingdom in the European Union, this agreement will continue long into the future, regardless of EU membership or not.”
