Kerry Oireachtas Chair says only way to resolve Brexit impasse is another referendum

Kerry TD Michael Healy-Rae says the only way to resolve the Brexit impasse is for the UK to hold another referendum.

The Independent TD is Oireachtas EU Affairs Committee Chairman.

He believes Theresa May should ask for an extension of time, and then ask the people to vote again.

The Scottish National Party’s Cabinet Secretary for Government Business and Constitutional Relations agrees with Deputy Healy-Rae.

Michael Russell will be speaking at the Killarney Economic Conference this Thursday; he says the only way forward is an extension of article 50, followed by another referendum.


Meanwhile, Ireland South Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ní Riada says there can be no movement on the backstop.
