SANER voices in the EU quietly agree with Britain that the Northern Ireland protocol does not work. Trouble is, only one side genuinely wants to fix it.
The Tories have hit a brick wall in renegotiating the deal, hoping to end Brussels’ absurd nit-picking checks on UK produce, reassure unionists and restart the Stormont assembly.
Boris Johnson must ignore EU threats and fix the broken Northern Ireland protocol[/caption]
A two-lane solution to split goods going to Northern Ireland from those going to the single market seems sensible. Without that, or similar, peace is at risk.
Brussels and its Remainer stooges merely cry: “You signed it . . . live with it.” But why such childish intransigence, given the dangers the Protocol presents while barely protecting the EU?
Answer: It is their last toe in Brexit’s closing door. A last piece of Britain over which EU judges still have a say.
Make it work, they think, and Brexit will be fully done. Better then to let the wound fester, whatever the risk, and pray for a Remainer Government.
Boris Johnson is dead right to ignore its threats, face down sabotage in Parliament and force the issue on the public’s behalf.
WILL a deportation flight to Rwanda take off today with no one aboard?
Such a farce could yet arise despite the Government’s court win yesterday.
Because it is now clear that a wall of left-wing resistance against ANY deterrent to illegal immigration will trump millions of voters who demanded one.
No wonder so many chancers flock here. They are guaranteed food, housing and a support crew of “no borders” campaigners, screeching protesters and lawyers to secure their new life.
This naïve army never takes responsibility for the effects of uncontrolled immigration. Nor will they feel shame if more migrants tragically drown in the Channel.
A handful may yet be flown out today. For perspective, 111 others landed illegally on our shores on Sunday alone.
No one will be deterred until the Rwanda flights operate unimpeded.
LIZ Truss is right to worry that so many on the Left have such distaste for Britain — our past and present.
It is why Labour wrapping themselves in the Union Jack rings so hollow.
Many once backed the IRA against us. Now, like Keir Starmer, they back the EU in every dispute.
Some back Argentina over the Falklands, still call them the “Malvinas” and wish we had surrendered them exactly 40 years ago instead of liberating them.
We were right to wage war to reclaim them, for the very reason Ukraine fights today. Brutal regimes must NEVER be able to steal sovereign territory by force.
True of the Argie junta of 1982. True now of Russia and China.
