President of Sinn Fein Gerry Adams has admitted that politicians in Brussels should ‘quite likely’ sanction Britain over Brexit.
The controversial politician added that the remaining EU member states should do so to protect their own interests.
Speaking to PBS NewsHour, Mr Adams said: “The European Union, quite rightly, like any other federation or state, will want to protect itself.
“There will be tariffs, there will be economic penalties and there will be physical manifestations of a hard border.”
The controversial politician moved on to attack Mrs May’s Government, adding: “I don’t think they give a fig about people here – I don’t think they ever have.”
He also called on Theresa May to do the “decent thing” and deliver a “special deal” to allow Northern Ireland to have a “special designated status” within the EU.
During this discussion, he even said that ‘tariffs and economic penalties’ may be the best approach when dealing with Britain’s exit negotiations.
Sinn Fein MLA John O’Dowd added: “Exiting the single European market, exiting the customs union, creates a hard border on the island of Ireland.
“Warm words, soft words from Theresa May mean nothing.”
