Von der Leyen bottles it! EU stops legal action against UK – Brexit talks hit ‘standstill’
The Daily Express says: BRUSSELS has paused its legal proceedings against Britain in the hope of easing tensions over Brexit trade checks in Northern Ireland.
The European Commission announced that it would freeze the infringement process against the UK over its move to defy EU red tape in the region. Eurocrats had accused Downing Street of breaching international law by temporarily suspending EU-ordered checks between mainland Britain and Northern Ireland. Brussels’ decision to pause the legal action comes amid rising tensions over the Brexit deal’s protocol to avoid a hard border.
