SINN FEIN’S Northern Ireland leader Michelle O’Neill accused the British government yesterday of undermining power-sharing to frustrate opposition to Brexit.

Ms O’Neill claimed that Westminster did not want a Stormont executive that would oppose leaving the EU.

“They don’t want an executive that is going to take a firm stand against Brexit, because obviously the majority of people here voted to remain in the European Union,” said Ms O’Neill, following a meeting with Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire.

Sinn Fein campaigned in this year’s assembly elections on a platform of opposition to Brexit, raising the spectre of an end to the 90-year-old free movement arrangements between Britain and the Irish republic.

Some 56 per cent of Northern Ireland’s voters backed Remain in last summer’s referendum.
