"If the British government does not honor its agreements, it does ' t adhere to the treaties he signs, which should apply to everyone as well.
"At the time they go around the world, they try to negotiate new trade deals. ..

The former leader Theresa May's cabinet minister Lord Gavin Barwell, meanwhile, warned that the UK's proposal to change the Northern Ireland protocol had no chance of success and would go even further too bad for our relations with our closest neighbors ".
"My problem is if you agree to something and fight an election saying it's a fantastic deal that's - and then almost immediately after, you start trying to figure it out - the danger is that the people you are negotiating with will think that you don 't agree in good faith in the first place, and that makes the job a whole lot harder. difficult when you try to renegotiate it, "he said at an Institute for Government event.
He said he didn't like the current Northern Ireland protocol - but argued the UK government had to meet with the EU "halfway through ".
