British negotiator, David Frost, calls out the EU in a public statement on twitter.

With EU – UK trade negotiations taking place next week in Brussels, the UK brexit trade negotiator David Frost has published a statement calling out the EU negotiators on its hypocrisy, reminding the EU that they can not take Britain for granted after Barnier released a statement trying to back up their failed negotiation stance.

Mr Barnier said: “Protocol on IE/NI is not a threat to the integrity of the UK. We agreed this delicate compromise with @BorisJohnson & his gov in order to protect peace & stability on island of Ireland. We could not have been clearer about the consequences of sticking to facts is also essential. A case in point: EU is not refusing to list U.K. as a third country for food imports (SPS). To be listed, we need to know in full what a country’s rules are, incl. for imports. The same objective process applies to all listed countries”

Both side meet for 9th round of talks next week.

In a response, Mr Frost fired back saying: “I would like to make a few comments and state a few facts, in my capacity as the PM’s negotiator in the current and last autumn’s talks. On the Protocol, we indeed negotiated a careful balance in order to preserve peace and the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. It is precisely to ensure this balance can be preserved in all circumstances that the Govt needs powers in reserve to avoid it being disrupted.”

“On 3rd country listings: the EU knows perfectly well all the details of our food standards rules because we are operating EU rules. The situation on 1.1.21 is accordingly perfectly clear. We have discussed this frequently with the EU including last week. “

“Any changes in future would be notified to the WTO and EU in the usual way with plenty of lead time. The EU lists dozens of countries globally on precisely this basis, without any sort of commitment about the future. Yet it has been made clear to us in the current talks that there is no guarantee of listing us.”

“I am afraid it has also been said to us explicitly in these talks that if we are not listed we will not be able to move food to Northern Ireland. The EU’s position is that listing is needed for Great Britain only, not Northern Ireland. So if GB were not listed, it would be automatically illegal for NI to import food products from GB. I hope the EU will yet think better of this. It obviously makes it no easier to negotiate a good free trade agreement and the solid future relationship which we all want.”

  1. My own opinion for what it is worth is that to be totally free from the EU as most of us voted for, it will be necessary to dump the withdrawal agreement for which the EU has been paid £1 billion a month so a trade deal can be worked out and leave the transition period in January on WTO terms. Almost 60% of our exports go to the world on WTO. WTO will not stop trade between the UK and the EU. The EU are not used tom being stood up to, but they are now up against a much bigger fish than they have been with Greece and other countries.

  2. Enter WTO rules then go for article 24 the EU can not discriminate it will give EU & UK at least 10 years to sort out a trade deal. I understand the EU have to agree to use article 24. But why wouldn’t they. If they refuse it just goes to show the EU never intended agreeing a trade deal which make the withdrawal agreament they signed off on. To sort a trade deal by 31st Dec 2020 in good faith. Which the EU are all ready breaking & chuck stones at UK & accuse UK of breaking the Withdrawal agreement.

  3. Any deal negociated and that alone seems impossible would never be agreed to by the individual EU Nations why do we persevere down a course that will produce nothing? Only a total break will force them back to the table to negotiate fairly without sniping at our sovereignty, laws and regulations which they see as their domain still.

  4. For heavens sake stop wasting time with the EU and implement what we voted for a Clean Break Brexit. We don’t want a cobbled together deal WE WANT A WTO deal and we never wanted a transition period just a complete waste of time and effort giving the EU extra time to continue to swindle us.
