I would love to be able to agree with the prime minister, but sadly I cannot.

His ‘Withdrawal Act’ is a ‘Betrayal Act’.

To the beleaguered unionists of Northern Ireland, Prime Minister Johnson’s deal is quite simply a statement of abandonment.

Selling out both the Union and Brexit, it creates an economic united Ireland.

All unionists must unite and mobilise to defeat this deal.
