DUP East Antrim MP Sammy Wilson said
DUP Parliamentary Spokesman on Education, Treasury and the Department of Work & Pensions.
“Whilst the full details of the Prime Minister’s ‘new improved’ Brexit deal are not fully revealed yet, it is clear at the fatal defects which caused it to be rejected three times will still be contained in it.
She might try to present this as a new more acceptable deal but it is still the same old, nation destroying, economic wrecking, roll-over surrender to Brussels. That is why we are asking people in this election to Vote Dodds 1 and send a message to London and Brussels that unionists reject the backstop. We want Brexit delivered and we will defend the Union.
Theresa May's attempt to repackage the same deal is similar to the actions of the detergent companies of the past. In fact it almost sounds like a detergent advert – new and improved but same old bottle. It won’t wash, regardless of how she tries to spin it.
She can put it on the highest spin speed in the Downing Street washing machine but it will still be apparent that it has all the same stains as the original Withdrawal Agreement.
Mrs May, may wish to put herself through the wringer when she puts it through the House of Commons again but it is clear from my sounding of people within her own party, including those who voted for it the last time, they will be opposing it the next time. They have not been fooled by her tacky and transparent advertising jargon.”
