EU terrified of UK Strategy – UK played the EU to get out, now their pushing to change the Northern Ireland Protocol as it’s “not working”. 

BETH Rigby revealed sources have told her there is “nervousness” within the European Union over the Northern Ireland Protocol as the UK have lamented the deal is “not working for them”.

Here’s what was said:

Ms Rigby told Sky News:

  • “[Boris and Biden] want to at this point promote democracy and promote free and fair trade.”
  • “And then on practical issues, they’ll both have a commitment to try and reopen travel between the US and UK as soon as they can.”
  • “So a symbolic moment, it is a great win for Boris Johnson who I’m sure will be delighted to be the first leader to welcome President Biden.”
  • “But as I said, is that Brexit – which President Biden was not that keen on anyway – and issues around Northern Ireland and the knock-on effect on the Good Friday Agreement. And potentially a trade war with the EU is something the US President does not want to see.”
  • “He will raise it with the prime minister because my sources in the EU say there is nervousness in the EU.”
  • “And that the UK want to undermine the Protocol, they’ve realised it isn’t working for them. They would like to… have a death by a thousand cuts to undermine it.”
