“We have enough difficulty with the European Union,” he said, saying the EU has “not treated the United States fairly on trading”.

He also said Mrs May had not listened to his advice on how to do a Brexit deal, saying: “I would have done it much differently. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me. She wanted to go a different route,” he said.

The motion, proposed by an independent councillor, was supported by Sinn Féin, SDLP and other independent members. There was only one vote against. Seven unionists, members of the DUP and UUP, abstained.

It was proposed as a way of showing support and respect for the families of the 1989 Hillsborough football stadium disaster. Independent councillor Paul Gallagher said: “In the aftermath of the Hillsborough inquiry, we wanted to show solidarity with the families, just as they showed solidarity with the families of Bloody Sunday.”
