Sinn Féin’s Dermot Nicholl speaking after he was selected as the Sinn Féin candidate at the East Derry selection convention tonight has said the upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity to vote against the Tory Brexit agenda and austerity.

The East Derry candidate said:

“In the last Assembly election the people came out and voted for equality, integrity and respect and that vote made a difference.

“Now as we face into a Westminster election where the Tories and the DUP want to drag us out of the EU against our will, the vote of the people can make a difference once again.

“Brexit will be a disaster for the economy, for local business, for farmers and the wider agri-food industry, for the health service, for workers’ rights and border communities.

“Staying in the EU is vital to our future prosperity but it must be a changed EU.

“There can be no EU frontier across Ireland. Trade tariffs and border controls are unacceptable.

“Sinn Féin is the only party to put forward a credible alternative to Brexit with our case for designated special status for the north within the EU.

“That case will not be won at Westminster but across Ireland and throughout Europe.

“What Sinn Féin wins in this election is a win for everyone who wants a new progressive politics which is modern and inclusive.”
