Northern Ireland’s DUP Confirms Will Campaign for BrexitDara Doyle
Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party confirmed it will campaign for a U.K. exit from the European Union in the June 23 referendum.
The U.K. won a seven-year “emergency-brake” period in which it can impose welfare curbs on other EU citizens arriving to work in Britain, as well as provisions for its financial services industry and agreement that the EU goal of “ever closer union” doesn’t apply to Britain.
“The Democratic Unionist Party has always been Eurosceptic in its outlook,” said Arlene Foster, the organization’s leader.
“In our view we see nothing in this deal that changes our outlook.”
