Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has claimed that Fianna Fail are "not to be trusted" as he criticised their MEP for proposing to vote against the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.
Speaking in Monaghan at Fine Gael's election launch, he insisted that Fine Gael had the team and experience to negotiate the next phase of Brexit.
Mr Varadkar said:
"I was really concerned to learn yesterday that Billy Kelleher, Fianna Fail's only MEP in the European Parliament, has indicated that he is going to vote against the Withdrawal Agreement. It demonstrates to me that Fianna Fail can't be trusted on the big issue of Brexit and also Fianna Fail once again is internally divided on a crucial issue. And I'm calling on Micheal Martin to explain that and explain why his only MEP is voting on the Withdrawal Agreement.”
