Britain turns the screw on the EU after the Commission doubled down on their refusal to renegotiate the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Yet again, the EU has doubled down on its refusal to renegotiate the EU pushed Northern Ireland Protocol.

European Union Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic has reiterated that it was not the blocs aim to renegotiate the deal after he declared that the UK should be fixing the “concrete” problems and “not try to renegotiate” the deal as it not in the bloc’s interest to do so.

Maros continued saying: “I believe that we can find a good solution to the outstanding issues.” .

The vice Commission President of the EU placed the sole blame on the problematic border currently down the Irish at the feet of Boris Johnson after it was he who signed the completion of the deal last December.

In contrast to the rhetoric from the EU, Brexit Minister Lord Frost is still pursuing a complete overhaul of the NI Protocol to eliminate Brussels ordered custom controls. The EU state they are refusing any alterations to the current deal as they believe there is enough flexibility built into the protocol to ease tensions and minimise disruption.

Mr Frost said: “To provide space for potential further discussions, and to give certainty and stability to businesses while any such discussions proceed, the government will continue to operate the protocol on the current basis.”

“This includes the grace periods and easements currently in force. Operational and other guidance will be updated to reflect this approach. We will ensure that reasonable notice is provided in the event that these arrangements were to change, to enable businesses and citizens to prepare.”

The negotiations continue…

  1. Sefcovic has uttered the ultimate words “not in their interests” to overhaul the protocol. Of course it is not in their interests, by overhauling the protocol or even re-negotiating the parts that are causing the issues because of the corrupt commission interpretation rather than as intended, it would mean they no longer have any leverage on the UK. It would totally remove their punishment programme, that it is why it is not in their interests to re-negotiate anything. It would also expose them, no matter that they expose themselves on a daily basis to exactly what they are and what they are doing to the UK.

    Of course Johnson is part at fault, but the ,main blame lies on Merkel’s shoulders. She was the one that insisted o n the border in the Irish Sea, she has been the driving force of the dictatorship on absolutely everything, she was the one that promised the idiots Varadkar and Coveney better jobs within the cesspit if they complied with her orders and toed the cesspit line. Only to later admit there were never any positions for either Varadkar or Coveney. They excelled themselves and for what, where has it got them? All it has done is basically close down the relationship between the UK and the ROI, and caused major issues in Northern Ireland. Even BArnier has admitted he was not 100% on why he as appointed Chief Negotiator for the cesspit because his hands were tied behind his back.

    Merkel should have been gone long ago, she has been the trouble maker for far too long. Brexit was the straw that broke the camels back where the German’s are concerned. She has lost her pride and passion, she has lost both of her jobs and forced into retirement. I have no doubt she will still be trying to pull strings even though she officially is no longer anything..
