The European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has stated that reaching a trade deal with Britain is fading day by day as the UK government continues its push to amended withdrawal agreement after EU threatened to carve up Britain if we don’t come to a deal in the transition period.
With the EU saying this new amendment that is being pushed through the UK Parliament is in breach of “international law”, the UK states that this move is to safeguard the UK internal market, only to be used as a shield and safety net to external threats from the EU in their attempt to manipulate the negotiations and sovereignty of the United Kingdom.
In the EU state of the union address, Ursula said: “With every day that passes, the chances of a timely agreement do start to fade,”
The divorce agreement “cannot be unilaterally changed, disregarded or dis-applied”.
“This is a matter of law, trust and good faith … Trust is the foundation of any strong partnership,”
Boris said on Wednesday that this bill was to counter “absurd” threats from Brussels which included London be required to put up trade barriers between Britain and Northern Ireland meaning the EU would impose a food blockade.
