“The collapse of negotiations between Labour and the Conservatives demonstrates that the best way to deliver Brexit in the House of Commons is with a Conservative and DUP majority as demonstrated with the Brady amendment on 29 January.

This round of talks has wasted time rather than making progress and reducing uncertainty.  It was always doomed to failure.

The Government should reject the backstop and work for a sensible deal which unionists throughout the United Kingdom can support.

The people voted in 2016 and the result must be implemented.”
