British Supreme Court Ruling exposes undemocratic nature of British State


Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

“The latest ruling by the British Supreme Court on so-called Brexit brings into focus the undemocratic nature of the British state. Firstly, it underlines the powerlessness of the various devolved assemblies.

What this ruling reinforces is that all powers of national sovereignty are vested in the British imperial parliament at Westminster while the Six-County state is regarded as merely another region of the so-called United Kingdom.

Secondly, the British Supreme Court Ruling exposes the reality that the British Government’s supposed concern for the “will of the majority within Northern Ireland” is subservient to the interests of the imperial parliament at Westminster.”
