British Govt yet again in breach of Article 27 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties: ‘A party may not invoke the provisions of its internal law as justification for its failure to perform a treaty’ #PerfidiousAlbion https://t.co/WMyieexm9k

23 Sep 2020, 10:59 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The best traditions of any working class movement must include strong internationalism and opposition to all forms of colonial oppression & imperial exploitation - the British Labour Party’s position on the #OverseasOperationsBill is a predictable harbinger of things to come!

22 Sep 2020, 10:55 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Important message from Stormont tonight - great to see @moneillsf showing compassion and understanding of how difficult this is for people - if you find things difficult in the time ahead don’t be afraid to call lifeline on 0808 808 8000 or Samaritans on 116 123 #SocialSolidarity https://t.co/xy0EcyJfXW

Abe, forever a Yankee puppet, pays homage to Japanese imperial forces who murdered hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians at the Nánjīng massacre in 1937. Like his 2013 visit, this is designed to antagonise Beijing & heighten geopolitical tensions https://t.co/PQZV9SQ6S0

The GAA has been to the fore in every parish across our island and further afield during the #covid pandemic - raised money, delivered parcels, helped our vulnerable citizens in their time of need. I’m forever grateful, and eternally proud to be a member of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael https://t.co/7hDTiTHQ6E

21 Sep 2020, 10:44 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@CrossanBrendan Absolutely - would be great for young, aspiring players to see the county stars more regularly around the club and training/playing alongside them - plus I think it would create even more space for the appreciation of the ladies’ game

21 Sep 2020, 10:32 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@CrossanBrendan online streaming was great - tapped into a huge desire to watch club competition across the island and overseas - a highlights package would be a great addition to Sunday/Monday night tv schedule

21 Sep 2020, 10:02 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@CrossanBrendan There is a great piece to be written on this year’s championships across the board - Down senior & intermediate championship was great entertainment and quality appeared higher than many recent years. Lessons to be learned?

20 Sep 2020, 10:27 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Fair play to @CarryduffCLG for reaching Down final, it was always going to be a mammoth task to stop @KilcooGAC picking up their 18th county title - congrats to the Magpies, Down (and still the reigning Ulster) champs 2020 ⚫️⚪️

20 Sep 2020, 9 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The @OfficialDownGAA championships have been great quality & entertainment this year - all the best to @KilcooGAC @CarryduffCLG @SaulGac_AnDun & @drumgath_gac in today’s men football finals

@BReid27 @DeliLites @IoDNI @InvestNI @paddyraffcomedy @Jackier80535427 @garymcchef @donnell_cathal @cormac_harty @CormacHarty1 Great news Brian - well done to you and all the team

SF size plank of wood in her eye is blinding Eilis to fact British MOD dumped more than 1.2million tonnes of munitions in the Beaufort Dyke in the Irish Sea into the ‘70s, including variety of chemical munitions such as phosphorus & radium. https://t.co/56TuTpTFPa

19 Sep 2020, 2:06 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@1PhilipSmith These munitions were dumped in the Irish Sea with little or no concern for the people of Ireland - who, increasingly of late, face the consequences of them washing ashore or getting caught in trawler nets - check this out: https://t.co/drJjqPBvBh

19 Sep 2020, 11:38 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Ardglass harbour evacuated as local trawler returns with a special catch in its nets - yet more British Army munitions - completely unacceptable that these munitions are regularly putting our coastal communities in danger in Co Down https://t.co/0J78tyGoiC

18 Sep 2020, 11:29 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@little_pengelly @DavidHenigUK @afneil Hi Emma, there is no request for “export declarations” - that’s a straw-man argument. I’m not a barrister, nor have I lectured on EU law, but I can’t find any demand for Export Declarations from the EU - don’t you mean Exit Summary Declarations? Very different beast

18 Sep 2020, 11:14 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Politically motivated sanctions that are designed to suffocate and starve - UN have already called on western powers to suspend these measures during Covid - instead the embargoes tighten, the sanctions toughen, and the imperial powers plunder the resources of sovereign peoples https://t.co/kuBgyqxXF8

18 Sep 2020, 9:17 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

This latest intervention from the USA means both Presidential candidates have now issued direct warnings to British Govt not to mess with Irish Peace Process & GFA https://t.co/AB5LCxkAOX

17 Sep 2020, 11:53 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Fine Gael respond to questions from media asking if Leo actually did anything about rip off insurance.... https://t.co/zgxKDFxYDl

The CIA backed coup in #Bolivia is collapsing as the @MAS_IPSP_ lead the masses back to power https://t.co/oNkMjKveq1

17 Sep 2020, 5:37 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Leo is responsible for much in Ireland today - the last thing he is responsible for however is @PearseDoherty unrelenting work re: insurance companies https://t.co/9vWuBb9LbG

17 Sep 2020, 1:42 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

This from the British Govt is a clear signal that it has no desire to respect international law and more of the same will soon follow in the Autumn Finance Bill - very real threat to GFA & devolution #Brexit https://t.co/WXpDDYpSJl

17 Sep 2020, 11:52 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The Boris Climbdown also does not remove the breach of the Good Friday Agreement re: theft of devolved powers (Clause46) - Irish, Welsh & Scottish Finance Ministers have spoken out today on this @guyverhofstadt @MichelBarnier https://t.co/6D829rZREr

17 Sep 2020, 11:23 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Devolved finance ministers in Edinburgh, Cardiff & Stormont unite in opposition to Westminster’s attack on devolution - much more to IMBs unlawfulness than merely Brexit related clauses https://t.co/2XDzBG4XU3

16 Sep 2020, 11:55 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@strandedinNI Absolutely - have been saying for some time now that those of us who cherish the peace process and the GFA have our ‘ways & means’ 😉

16 Sep 2020, 10:46 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

How long will the British political establishment & commentariat stay fixated with the “Bob Neill amendment” before they realise it solves almost nothing?! You could give Parliament a dozen votes and the Bill would still be in breach of international law & undermine the GFA

16 Sep 2020, 10:24 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Sorry to hear this; hope Christopher makes a full and speedy recovery https://t.co/P2X5lSEnFU

Fair to say Dominic Raab’s airfare was a waste of money... Positive statement of intent tonight from yet another leading US political rep... https://t.co/ZhPNFB4ZJD

16 Sep 2020, 8:16 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Dominic Raab is a charlatan - here he is trying to suggest that the EU is a threat to peace in Ireland and that they are forcing a regulatory border in the Irish Sea - the same regulatory border Dominic Raab voted for in the Withdrawal Agreement https://t.co/lTyhTXgOq4

16 Sep 2020, 12:16 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Like the time key evidence in the Loughinisland Massacre investigation was “lost” because it was destroyed in an “asbestos clean up” in Gough Barracks..... https://t.co/PmxRJ9DfWm

16 Sep 2020, 10:33 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

There is an interesting (and no doubt lengthy) article to be written on the treaties and agreements the British didn’t stick to with Ireland, never mind the countless international examples... https://t.co/K0BFo48Q0k

16 Sep 2020, 9:45 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

“The EU and UK jointly agreed it (WA/Protocol) was the best and only way for ensuring peace on the island of Ireland. We will never backtrack on that.” “It cannot be unilaterally changed, disregarded or disapplied. This is a matter of law and trust and good faith.” https://t.co/DMhyfvNuFV

16 Sep 2020, 9:39 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Strong warning from EU President @vonderleyen during her State of the European Union Address re: British Govt’s disregard for the Irish peace process, the Good Friday Agreement, and the rule of law #SOTEU2020 https://t.co/h08hifQ9yn

15 Sep 2020, 9:37 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@clemobluegrass Hi again Michael, in recent weeks re: Brexit I’ve met with British PM, Sec of State, Shadow SoS, US reps, Irish Govt reps & in constant contact with colleagues in Brussels - I haven’t been on tv in the Westminster chamber, but don’t be fooled into thinking that’s the only action!

14 Sep 2020, 10:49 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The British Parliament has just backed Boris Johnson’s attempts to break the law https://t.co/So3rmHciAV

14 Sep 2020, 7:38 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The Brit Govt’s latest Brexit plans are a full frontal assault on the Good Friday Agreement - a shameful and cynical theft of devolved powers https://t.co/zkWD8lghlL

14 Sep 2020, 9:05 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The only people to have ever “banned” food stuffs from entering Ireland was the British Govt. Villiers is a Brexit zealot who also happened to be a woeful SoS - not even a facade of impartiality as she campaigned for Brexit with DUP locally in 2016 https://t.co/KfejGTmQA0

13 Sep 2020, 7:28 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@beananseo @FemmeLoves @nmdcouncil First time I’ve ever seen the likes of this; not sure of the logic - perhaps @nmdcouncil can have a look at fixing?

13 Sep 2020, 7:08 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Fair play to @TeconnaughtGac ladies with storming second half display to win championship today 🟢⚪️⚫️ https://t.co/zFVsPnxI5l

13 Sep 2020, 11:40 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Another reminder that DUP Westminster fringe controlled by the Tory ERG zealots - amendments will inevitably go nowhere; DUP again on the wrong side of the Brexit debate when it comes to representing the interests of people here in the north of Ireland https://t.co/8yxNI6Tphr

13 Sep 2020, 11 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Clinical deconstruction of British Govt’s straw man argument re: blockading food consignments in the Irish Sea from Michel Barnier. https://t.co/RlNBDObq1e

13 Sep 2020, 10 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

British Govt’s Justice Secretary just said live on #Marr that he would resign if the “rule of law was being broken in a way that I find unacceptable” - so there’s an acceptable way to break the rule of law then??

12 Sep 2020, 2:12 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Should have been at @FetedelHumanite this weekend if not for Covid, now it appears the man who provided some classic Fête soundtracks - Toots Hibbert - has passed away in Jamaica! Gutted. RIP #TootsandtheMaytals #tootshibbert https://t.co/YXGLbnJQPF

12 Sep 2020, 12:52 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Boris Johnson wants to “back up” the British Govt negotiators - almost as if the last guy who went to Brussels for a deal fell short - poor chap, I wonder what ever became of him.... https://t.co/vCdXZ37nhX

11 Sep 2020, 10:24 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

With the centenary of the 1920 Govt of Ireland Act on the horizon the British PM actually has the temerity to accuse the EU of “carving up our country” https://t.co/dYHTwD8HXL

Significant statement of european solidarity tonight from majority of MEPs - British Govt must now abandon their illegal plans to rip up the Irish Protocol or there will be no trade deal - it’s that simple! Sin é https://t.co/OD5Sev42Pq

11 Sep 2020, 11:54 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Good episode of @loadofballs01 this week with coverage of @OfficialDownGAA Junior Semifinals - don’t fret @MartinWw123 @jtfegan Donal is wrapped in cotton wool this week... https://t.co/g6LcFUUImt

10 Sep 2020, 11:02 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Looks like the Tories have nuked their own “oven ready deal” - events this week quickly descending into a diplomatic farce for Perfidious Albion https://t.co/RuLMZNXXDO

It appears the British Govt’s Internal Market Bill is a destructive attempt to emasculate the authority of devolved administrations; undermine the Irish Protocol; and is deliberately provocative re: non applicability of ECJ rulings. This won’t fly in any circumstance.

8 Sep 2020, 1:22 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

He’s now just went and confirmed that the new Internal Market Bill will break the law - astonishing admission from a Secretary of State to make on his feet in Parliament https://t.co/X1CbCn9HmD

Brandon Lewis floundering in his pathetic excuses for Brit Govt’s bad faith re: Protocol - now saying Withdrawal Agreement isn’t a real treaty...

8 Sep 2020, 10 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

I don’t know if Pat personally tweeted this, or a staffer @PatKennyNT but it’s indicative of a neoliberal mindset that sees cities as nothing but glistening glasshouses for capital rather than living, breathing communities - horrible framing that ignores victims of RTCs also https://t.co/LhUgk0AyVf

6 Sep 2020, 11 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

If true this would be a provocative act of bad faith from a British Govt seemingly intent on becoming an international pariah https://t.co/092omNu45S
