After the Government’s latest defeat the DUP’s deputy leader Nigel Dodds said he would rather remain in the EU than back Theresa May’s deal. He did however, say he would prefer Brexit to be delivered.
Better to remain in EU than back Withdrawal Agreement, says DUP’s Dodds
Brexit set for long delay after MPs turn down Withdrawal Agreement
Spotting an Ulster flag in the huge crowd, the North Antrim MP roared: “You are red, you are white – you are dynamite” as the thousands sounded their approval.
“It’s great to see you in Parliament Square,” he went on.
“Ladies and gentlemen, there is a good story recounted in the good book. It says the wise build their house upon a rock. I am glad today we are standing with the rock of the British people against the sinking sand of the withdrawal agreement that we will never, never wear on our people.”
Calling Mrs May’s Irish backstop plan ‘the backstab’, the North Antrim MP told the crowd: “Your journey here has been long.
“It has faced many twists and turns. There will be more agonising days and steps ahead. But ahead of us stands the sunny uplands of freedom.
“And they will never take our freedom.
“Do not let any government ever put upon you a withdrawal agreement that cuts our great nation in two. The backstop.. the backstab that ruins our country.
“And thank you to the English, the Scots and the Welsh for standing with the Ulster people.
“We say thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
