UK intention to abandon sections of EU Brexit accord
The government of the United Kingdom has announced plans to renegotiate some of the terms of the Brexit agreement it signed with the European Union in 2019.
That’s why it wants to alter the Protocol on Northern Ireland to make it simpler for products to go from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
On the other hand, also the EU has said that changing the agreement is against international law.
The United Kingdom’s administration, also on the other hand, maintains that the reforms will keep the country together.
Legislators will discuss and vote on the changes in the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill.
The government has promised to eliminate “unnecessary” paperwork from goods inspections .
To provide Northern Ireland’s firms with the same tax incentives as the rest of the United Kingdom’s companies.
In addition, “independent arbitration” rather than the European Court of Justice will be used to settle any trade disputes.
Liz Truss said that as a solution for Northern Ireland, it was “realistic, practical, and achievable”.
That the UK could only continue in discussions with the EU if “the EU is ready to amend the convention itself.”
“We’re operating in compliance with the law,” she stated.
The administration said “a negotiated settlement” with the EU would be preferable to the measure becoming law.
Something more than UK
But Michelle O’Neill, leader of Sinn Fein in Stormont, said that the prime minister was making things worse in Northern Ireland.
Boris Johnson’s actions “are criminal, whatever the details,” she added.
It’s a violation of a treaty that he signed on the dotted lin.
He’s now enacting legislation to do it. “
She said there is an executive in Northern Ireland.
She accused the Democratic Unionist Party of obstructing its establishment. The procedure, she said, is operating.
In the recent assembly elections, Sinn Féin got the most seats.
Until the process is changed, the DUP has said that it would not create a power-sharing executive with its rivals.
It claims that the regulations as they now exist create a rift that might lead to the dissolution of the United Kingdom.
“I don’t think what the government is proposing is unlawful,” DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said.
What we need are answers, and I think this is one of them. “
Furthermore he said, “We have the full backing of the whole labor movement.”
