Fianna Fáil Leader Micheál Martin speaking to the media yesterday at The Portico, Leinster House with Seanad Leader Catherine Ardagh

“I think the no-deal scenario opens up such potential economic disruption and is uncertain and cannot be foreseen, despite all of the analysis we’ve had in terms of what will happen, that I think it would be irresponsible to provoke a general election in the next number of months

…I am told the ports are not ready. Dublin Port is not ready for a no-deal Brexit, despite what you hear.

I am told by people who know the port… that mayhem will ensue.

It’s important that if a no-deal Brexit is to occur – it may not – but if it’s to occur all hands need to be on deck to make sure that the people are looked after out there, that jobs are looked after, that livelihoods are looked after and protected insofar as we possibly can.

That has to be the essential prerequisite of any political party in the country.”

Mayhem.
