Minister Michael Creed launched a scathing attack of Britain’s management of Brexit.
Speaking ahead of today’s Brexit talks in Kilkenny between Irish And English Parliamentary leaders, Minister Creed, speaking with the Irish Examiner, slammed his British counterparts for showing a clear lack of leadership and coherence.
Minister Creed stated that this lack of leadership and political coherence has caused instability to spill over, and thus impacting Brexit.
He continued his attack of the British Parliament by adding that they are now growing a backbone, and says they are trying hard to fill a leadership hole.
He of course was speaking of Prime Minister Teresa May’s already challenging spell as British Prime Minister.
He also added that he expects a leadership challenge to Teresa May’s reign.
Minister Creed says that until issues surrounding her leadership are solved, that there will be no coherence in any Brexit strategy coming from them.
It is thought Creed’s tempers flared due to the recent plans announced by Britain to close off access to it’s waters.
This is set to have a huge impact on Ireland’s €1billion euro fishing industry, as 60% of the countries Mackerel produce and 43% of prawns come from the waters mentioned.
This is set to have a huge impact on an industry employing over 11,000 people.
Mr. Creed concluded, stating his unhappiness at the whole situation, and says he will be working hard to seek more funds from the budget to budget proof Irish exporters.
