In both cases, these “specific and limited” interventions do little to allay the concerns expressed by trade unionists in Northern Ireland. With regard to goods relocated from Britain to Northern Ireland, important controls and processes are still needed and a Brexit without a deal would lead to an even tougher border. Sargeant is not convinced by the government`s controversial Brexit moves – and warns that peace will be threatened if the government continues its trajectory, Neal told the New York Times, who had also assured Raab on the Good Friday deal, but said he was blind to recent changes proposed in the withdrawal agreement. The UK government`s internal market law, which contains measures to amend the EU withdrawal agreement, poses a serious threat to the Good Friday agreement. Some provisions, such as. B that the rules on food security or air quality, which were previously defined in the EU agreements, are now controlled by the devolved administrations or Westminster. The Internal Market Bill insists that devolved administrations must accept the goods and services of all UK nations, even though their standards are different on the ground. Mr Pompeo simply stated that this was the British government`s business, but “he had great confidence that they would do it properly in a way that treats everyone fairly and would get a good result for the British citizens who voted for it a few years ago.” While the EU may pursue a number of legal avenues to compel the UK to comply with the protocol, it could conclude that the UK`s recent actions pose a threat to the internal market. If so, the politically sensitive – and security-risk – issue of the island`s or Ireland`s border infrastructure could be reopened. Raab had previously accused the EU of wanting to politicize the Brexit withdrawal deal and insisted that Britain did not want to build new infrastructure on the Northern Ireland-Ireland border. It has become even more controversial because one of its main objectives is to allow ministers to adopt regulations, even if they oppose the withdrawal agreement with the EU under the Northern Ireland Protocol.
