An unannounced visit today by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnston to Tayto Castle in Tandragee has been condemned by the MP for the area Mickey Brady.

Speaking after the hush hush trip the Newry and Armagh representative said Mr Johnson is attempting to avoid public scrutiny over Brexit.

 The Sinn Fein candidate for Newry and Armagh said "British Prime Minister Boris Johnson sneaked into Tandragee today on an unannounced visit but he can't escape the fact that the majority of people in the north rejected the reckless Tory Brexit.

 "I'm sure the business community, the farmers, the agri-food producers, retailers, cross-border workers, young people and many others would have welcomed the opportunity to confront Boris Johnson about the impact of Brexit. 

 "When I speak to all of these groups they are cannot see anything good from Brexit and are hugely critical of the Tory/DUP agenda. They want to see the protections that have been secured in Europe for our economy, for our peace agreements and to avoid a hard border. And more and more are looking to a way back into the EU through Irish unity.

 "While Boris Johnson may want to avoid the people he can't avoid the polls and on December 12 the public will have a chance to have their say."
