The UK government has always intended to "drop" the Ireland duNorth protocol, former Boris Johnson adviser Dominic Cummings asserted.
In a series of tweets, Cummings said the Brexit deal had been a way out of the electoral slump and 'hit [Jeremy] Corbyn', and 'of course' the government should be allowed to 'sometimes break deals ... as everyone does other states ”.
His words alarmed Dublin, where the L ' former taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who negotiated the Northern Ireland protocol with Johnson at a meeting in Wirral in October 2019, said that, if true, they show you cannot be trusted to the government.
"These comments are very alarming as it would indicate that this is a govt administrationthat has acted in bad faith, "said Varadkar. " And this message must be heard around the world, because if the British government does not honor its agreements, does not adhere to the treaties that he signs, that must apply to everyone too.
"So right now they're going around the world, they're trying to negotiate new ones commercial agreements. The message must be sent to every country in the world: this is a UK government that does not necessarily keep its word, does not necessarily honor the deals it makes. "
The UE is should unveil on Wednesday what he called " very far-reaching proposals " to end the dispute over protocol and cargo controls in the Irish Sea.
The claimsCummings' ns correspond to comments made last year by backbench MP Steve Baker who said the European backbenchers research group was persuaded to vote for the deal on Brexit despite their reservations on checks on goods crossing the Irish Sea.
Last week, Mark François, the current president of the Irish Sea 'ERG told The Guardian that they had signed the deal knowing it was "a risk" because the protocol, in their opinion, was flawed, but there was a greater price involved. : UK's exit from the EU.
In a series of tweets, Cummings appeared relaxed about the changes to the protocol. "Shd, we usually stick to agreements? Sure. Sometimes break them? Sure. Just like the EU, US, China and every other state do. International diplomacy can't to be judged selon the standards of a student duel, and lawyers are hired to help not the masters, ”he wrote.
Referring to the home market bill that the Conservatives party tabled last fall, which was eventually withdrawn, he said: “After we introduced IM # 1 BRX immediately had * a lot more * of serious discussions like we thought so. I think it's handled well, given the overall situation (power, etc.) we are dropping the meaning bits causing issues in NI without too much trouble. But I think that at a small percentage they will, they will need a new prime minister. "
He claimed that the party agreed to the Brexit deal to get out of the electoral slump and provide a chance for a clear victory in the 2019 general election.
"We took the control of a party at about 10%, lhe worst constitutional crisis of the century, much of the state fishing deep for BINO or 2REF. So we got fussed [ugh] with the best option we have cd and have plans to drop the [emoji trolley - a reference to Boris Johnson] s we didn't like after hitting Corbyn. We have given priority. "
The former Downing Street chief then added:" Now it's time for IM2 #Frosty ", a reference to the markets bill interior, which aims to prevent trade barriers coming into force between parts of the UK.
