Northern Ireland whacked by Brexit, says Bill Clinton

By Staff Reporter

Former US president Bill Clinton has warned Northern Ireland will get "whacked" if voters back Brexit.

He said June's vote could impact on peace and added that it was too easy to turn away when dealing with the problems facing Europe.

Mr Clinton said: "It's Northern Ireland that will really get whacked if Britain withdrew from the European Union, and I hope they don't because it's too easy to believe that the only solution to the problems in the world is to hunker down."

Earlier this year, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said that it would create "serious difficulties" for Northern Ireland if the UK was to leave the EU.
