Sinn Fein says will oppose any deal that undermines peace deal

Parmenio Sano | 16 Giugno, 2017, 03:05

John Major said he had serious doubts about a proposed tie-up the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which is traditionally associated with the Protestant side of the sectarian divide in Northern Ireland.

Irish people were among protesters attending a demonstration against the Conservative party alliance with the DUP in Parliament Square on June 10, 2017 in London.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May will meet with a Northern Ireland-based party to see if they can together push through the Conservative Party's agenda after a disastrous snap election left her short of a majority in Parliament.

Arlene Foster, the leader of the DUP, flies to London today for discussions with Mrs May equipped with a list of demands that includes proposals that would punish Sinn Féin.

"I understand there is a new United Kingdom government and changes in the government in the Republic but there remains no impetus to this process, which doesn't inspire confidence", he said.

He added: "The danger is that however much any government tries they will not be seen to be impartial if they are locked into a parliamentary deal at Westminster with one of the Northern Ireland parties, and you never know in what unpredictable way events will turn out, and we can not know if that impartiality is going to be crucial at some stage in the future". It isn't certain, it is under stress.

"Although I don't expect it suddenly to collapse, because there's a broad consensus that wishes it to continue, I think we have to take care with it and take care that everything we do does not exaggerate the underlying differences that still are there in the Northern Ireland community".


Apart from legal wrangling, though, there is also concern that the unionists might seek to extract concessions from the Conservatives that would immediately exacerbate sectarian tensions in Northern Ireland.

Criticism has also come from within May's own party, as a senior Conservative source was reported over the weekend as saying: "More and more colleagues are becoming distinctly uneasy about the idea of a formal pact with the DUP".

His sentiments have been echoed by Labour's former Northern Ireland Secretary Peter Hain, who called it a "very, very unsafe move at a time of crisis at Stormont". Talks between the parties resumed Monday in a bid to end the political deadlock.

She warned that a outcome of failing to re-establish a powersharing executive would be the return of direct rule, with decisions on devolved issues being taken by the London government.

Any hard border, he said, would be catastrophic.

The European Union has already said that it will make the border issue one of its top priorities, as has the British government.

Northern Ireland has been without a powersharing executive since March and without a first and deputy first minister since January.
