The United Kingdom has not complied with the Brexit Protocol agreements on ‘Northern Ireland & Ireland’. According to the agreements, the boundary between the two regions will be strictly controlled, but this will not happen. The British unilaterally postponed the transition period for these border tests to October 1. This creates new frictions between the UK and Brussels, says EU correspondent Stephen de Vries.
The British claim that this protocol does not work. This can lead to empty supermarket shelves, long queues and high bureaucracy. The UK wants to make new, more practical deals with Brussels. ‘The EU is very clear against the British. Own fault ‘. The European Commission has already indicated that fines will be imposed if the British continue to violate the rules.
An easy solution for the British was to change their standards to European standards. “It solves almost all problems, but it generates a lot of opposition from English politicians,” says De Vries. This amendment will lead to the ‘withdrawal control policy’ that Brexit wanted to fall.
