Brexit: "We Let Scots Vote In Our Referendum" Says Tory MP

Bernard Jenkin was delivering a speech on the effects of Brexit on the Devolved Administrations at Queen’s university, Belfast in March this year when he was asked about Northern Ireland voting to remain in the EU. The Conservative MP for Harwich & North Essex replied: “I mean it may seem a tiresome technicality, but it was a United Kingdom referendum and the last time Ireland [sic] voted, they wanted to be part of the United Kingdom – and the same goes for Scotland, we let them vote in our referendum.” He added: “And they helped decide the result for the whole of the United Kingdom.”
