The action taken by the EU to start proceedings against Britain due to not dropping certain parts of the Internal Market Bill has two outcomes according to a German correspondent Barbara Wesel from DW. Barbara stated the two outcomes from these proceeding is either a begging apology to the EU commission or exit the negotiations without a deal.
The news correspondent said: “There is, with the EU, always wiggle room in cases like this.
“Now the clock starts ticking. The UK will get a letter; they have a chance to write a letter back. “They can say, ‘We are sorry, we didn’t mean it like that, can we agree that this didn’t happen?’ “They can try to find some face-saving formula. It is doable, but they will have to walk it back.”
Barbara continued saying: “This is not just a legal detail, this is about the future of trade in Ireland.
“This is about keeping borders in Ireland open and keeping Ireland tied to the internal market of the EU. This has to be kept.
“The Ireland Government is very nervous seeing all these shenanigans coming from London.
“Britain will have to choose: they will either leave with a big crash no deal, or they will have to compromise and walk this back.”
