Arlene Foster, Leader of the DUP, and Sir Graham Brady back Lord Bew paper on the Irish Backstop

Jul 3, 2019

The new PM must “seek a new approach to the Irish border issue as part of a broader strategy after Brexit to stabilise and strengthen the Union,” said a new briefing paper by Lord Bew. It featured a Foreword by Sir Graham Brady MP (read it on Red Box), author of the Brady Amendment, and was endorsed by Arlene Foster, Leader of the DUP, at the Policy Exchange event. The idea that the Backstop is required by the Good Friday Agreement, she said, is “the greatest lie told in politics today”. Watch the full event here. Read coverage in The Express.
