SDLP MLA for South Down Sinead BradleySDLP Economy Spokesperson Sinead Bradley MLA has said that the incompetence displayed by the British Government following the triggering of Article 50 is deeply worrying for the position of Northern Ireland. Bradley’s comments follow Theresa May’s admission that a trade deal with the European Union will not be finalised until after the UK has left, compounding uncertainty.
  The local MLA said, “The sloganeering of the Brexiteers has disappeared like snow off a ditch now that the scale of the challenge facing the British Government becomes apparent following the rush to trigger Article 50.

What a disaster.
  “The series of government blunders that has characterised the initial post-Article 50 climate only creates further uncertainty. How can we have any confidence that these people can negotiate a resolution to the complex issues surrounding Northern Ireland?
  “This underscores the very serious need to secure a power sharing government after the talks. Parties must unite behind a common position on Brexit that defends the interests of people here.
