MEP hits out at ‘scaremongering’ from Government on Brexit – Dodds

A Northern Ireland MEP has hit out at what
she’s calling ‘scaremongering’ tactics by the Government in its efforts to persuade
UK citizens to vote to remain in the EU. The DUP MEP Diane Dodds says Irish
politicians are needlessly raising alarm over threats to peace and stability in
Northern Ireland if Britain votes to leave the EU on June 23rd. She says
the Irish government does not have the right to interfere in the lives of
citizens in the North. 

Out words: for scaremongering

retailers and processors.
