Theresa May reneging on UK government commitments on Irish backstop

Making commitments and reneging on them appears to be part of the unscripted, Shakespearean Brexit drama that is threatening to ravage the British economy. A second referendum seems increasingly more inviting given the prospects of increased clarity that will stem from it for UK businesses.

Helen McEntee, Ireland’s European Affairs minister stated, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s demand to place binding changes to Irish “backstop” essentially amounts to reneging on her government’s commitments.

“It’s exasperating at this stage because this is a deal which was negotiated with the UK, by the UK, signed off by the UK and the prime minister – and now it looks as though this evening, essentially, there is a row-back and a reneging on the commitments that were made,” said McEntee to the national broadcaster RTE.
