Brexit deal: London appears to be backtracking on the agreement • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE24, 22 Jul 2021
The# British government says the deal it agreed to with the #European Union concerning trade rules needs a major re-write... adding that the #UK would be justified in unilaterally suspending the legally binding #Brexit agreement.. But that it just hasn't decided to do so as yet. Six months after the UK left the EU, London wants to change the Northern #Ireland protocol which calls for goods from ainland Britain going to Northern Ireland to follow EU customs rules - with checks on the Irish Sea.
The idea was to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland that could jeopardize the ongoing peace process in Northern Ireland, which is a part of the UK. France 24's International Affairs Editor Douglas Herbert explains.
