Labour MP Kate Hoey lambasted the European Union on Friday, declaring that the UK didn’t fight IRA terrorists in Northern Ireland so “jumped-up EU bureaucrats” could steal one of the four corners of the United Kingdom as the iron-price for Brexit.
Catharine Letitia Hoey who was born 21 June 1946 is a veteran British Labour MP who was born and educated in Northern Ireland, spoke at the Leave Means Leave event, and was also spoke alongside cross-party line-up of Brexiteer politicians and business people which included the likes of DUP Brexit Spokesman – Sammy Wilson, former-Brexit Secretary David Davis, and last but certainly not least former-leader of UKIP and the man that made Brexit a reality Nigel Farage.
Kate Hoey is a long-standing Euro-sceptic and has been an extremely vocal supporter of Brexit since Great Britain & Northern Ireland voted to leave the European Union.
Kate Hoey blasted: “We didn’t spend 30 years in Northern Ireland stopping IRA terrorists killing soldiers, police, and civilians in order to get a United Ireland, [only] to allow a few jumped-up EU bureaucrats and a complicit prime minister to try and do the same thing by the back door,”
“Even more ridiculous is that it would not even be in the economic interests of Northern Ireland who depend so much [on] their trade to and from Britain.
“Why is a British prime minister dancing to the tune of an Irish taoiseach?” She went on to say. Obviously in regards to the Irish Taoseach Leo Varadkar who serves as the prime minister, chief executive and head of government of Ireland. Hoey added: There’s no need for a hard border and there’s no need for a backstop.”
Countless British soldiers, police officers, political figures and everyday citizens lost their lives due to sectarian terrorists the Irish Provisional Army (IRA) and their goal of ripping Northern Ireland away from the United Kingdom, people that support British unionism make up the majority citizens in Ulster. Northern Ireland decisively rejected the prospect of joining the Republic of Ireland in the 1973 referendum by 98.9% with a turnout 58.7%.
If the Labour Party ousted their incumbent leader Jeremy Corbyn, and replaced him with Kate Hoey I believe Labour would have an extremely good chance of walking into No.10 Downing Street and government. Just imagine, Kate Hoey vs. Theresa May going head-to-head in a general election?
