Should Sinn Féin’s seven abstentionist MPs resign their seats in order to allow anti-Brexit replacements play a part in stopping a no-deal Brexit?
The idea was put forth by Fintan O’Toole in a recent column and on Wednesday’s Inside Politics podcast, Sinn Féin TD Eoin Ó Broin and O’Toole debate the idea, which Ó Broin calls “patronising, insulting and undemocratic”.
