Nigel Farage has signed a petition hoping others follow to demand Boris to trigger article 16 of the Brexit agreement.
This call to action from Nigel Farage comes after the DUP leader Arlene Foster set up a petition saying Northern Ireland is being cut off from the rest of the UK with trade.
Nigel said: “It seems that Northern Ireland is being increasingly cut off from the rest of the UK in terms of trade.
“I am signing this petition to put pressure on the Government to do something and urge Brexiteers and those that believe in the UK to do the same.”
The petition calling for the triggering of article 16 reads: “Her Majesty’s Government must immediately remove any impediment or barrier to unfettered trade within the United Kingdom.
“After just one month, Northern Ireland is suffering real economic and societal difficulties as a consequence of the Northern Ireland Protocol operating and creating new barriers to unfettered trade within the United Kingdom and disrupting supply lines of goods to Northern Ireland.
“The Government should use all the powers it has to move urgently to protect UK trade and to ensure all UK goods and produce can freely flow to and from every part of the United Kingdom.”
In recent days, Boris has said that he is ready to break elements of the Brexit agreement related to Northern Ireland, but again it seems the pressure is needed from Mr Farage to make him listen. What’re your thoughts on this? Should Boris trigger article 16?
