Good Friday Agreement – update
By David Innes
This was a quick turnaround. On Monday, thousands of people signed a petition telling Theresa May not to use the Good Friday Agreement as a Brexit bargaining chip.  And later that same day she announced she “had no intention of revisiting the agreement”. 
This is very welcome news. So thank you. Part of our role as 38 degrees members – is to make sure our politicians know their decisions have consequences. And that there are millions of people who are ready – at the drop of a hat – to jump into action to protect the things we care most about.
And with Brexit still being negotiated, we need to stay vigilant. So together, with members of our sister organisation – Uplift – in Ireland, we will be keeping an eye on our politicians.  To make sure the fragile peace in Ireland is never put on the negotiating table.
