Britain wants to give up most of the Northern Ireland Protocol

Great Britain and the European Union are at odds over customs regulations for Northern Ireland. London is apparently planning to unilaterally lift all product controls.

According to a newspaper report, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss wants to scrap much of the Northern Ireland Protocol in the dispute over Northern Ireland customs regulations. Truss is said to have concluded that talks with the European Union have reached an impasse and that Maros Sefcovic, the vice-president of the European Commission, does not have the mandate to reach an acceptable deal, The Times reported.

The ministry has drafted legislation that would unilaterally lift all controls on UK products. A corresponding announcement is expected next week, according to the report. A ministry spokesman told Reuters: “No decisions have been made on how to proceed, but the situation is now very serious.”

controls on the movement of goods

The protocol aims to ensure that EU rules apply in Ireland without the need to introduce rigid border controls between the EU member and Great Britain’s Northern Ireland. As a result, controls on the movement of goods have been moved to the maritime border between the British mainland and Northern Ireland. Critics of Northern Ireland are up in arms, they see the beginning of a separation from the kingdom. Great Britain then demanded that the protocol signed as a result of Brexit be changed again.
