"Madam President, the Council’s guidelines on Brexit give support to the Good Friday Agreement in all of its parts, and that is crucially important. This is a commitment by the EU to not allow for any hardening of the border between the north and the south of Ireland. It is a commitment not to allow Irish and EU citizens like myself to be dragged out of the EU against our will. It is a recognition that the north of Ireland is not an internal matter for the United Kingdom, and a commitment that the people of the north will never again be left at the mercy of a ruthless and reactionary British Government in London. Now that we have the guidelines, we should be putting some flesh on them regarding no hardening of the border in Ireland and fully upholding the Good Friday Agreement in all of its parts. There should be no weakening of this commitment in the negotiation directive that is to be adopted next Monday. Brexit is incompatible with the Good Friday Agreement. Brexit is the worst thing to have happened in Ireland since the last disaster in Ireland, which was the British partitioning of Ireland."@en1
