YOU HAVE ONE MONTH – EU sues Britain for allegedly breaking international law.

Brussels has today said it’s suing Britain over Boris Johnson scrapping EU red tape for Northern Ireland.

The Vice President of the EU Commission has today triggered proceeding threatening Britain with one month to back down or face the consequences.

The EU said the suspension of trade checks on the Irish border is in itself a breach of international law. The EU continues to demand Boris Johnson to reverse his decision to cut red tape for Northern Ireland, but the UK refuses to adhere to the EU.

An EU official said: “It should come as no surprise that we are launching legal proceedings against the United Kingdom.”

A second insider added: “This is a second violation of international law on the same issue.

“We think that is an enormous problem because there are real-life issues behind all of this.”

“The UK must stop acting unilaterally, and stop violating the rules it has signed up to.

 

Mr Sefcovic said: “The Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland is the only way to protect the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement and to preserve peace and stability, while avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland and maintaining the integrity of the EU single market.

“The EU and the UK agreed the Protocol together. We are also bound to implement it together.

“Unilateral decisions and international law violations by the UK defeat its very purpose and undermine trust between us. The UK must properly implement it if we are to achieve our objectives.

“That is why we are launching legal action today. I do hope that through the collaborative, pragmatic and constructive spirit that has prevailed in our work so far on implementing the Withdrawal Agreement, we can solve these issues in the Joint Committee without recourse to further legal means.”

In his letter to Lord Frost, the EU Commission Vice President wrote: “By its actions so far, not only has the UK not put in place all measures necessary for the implementation of the Protocol, but it has unilaterally decided, without any discussion or consultations with the Union in the bodies established by the Withdrawal Agreement, to ‘postpone’ the application of Union rules made applicable by the Protocol and in some cases, deviate from practical arrangements discussed in the framework of the Joint Committee for the implementation of the Protocol.”

What about the integrity of the United Kingdom, it’s been in place a lot longer than the EU.
Threatening legal action is a sign of weak political stability and very limited diplomatic experience.
