Brexit LIVE: ‘Economic vandalism’ Irish PM throws down gauntlet at Truss masterstroke
Daily Express says LIZ TRUSS’ plans to override parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol have been described as “economic vandalism” by the Irish leader, who said the legislation is “deeply concerning” for industry and businesses in Northern Ireland.
Last week, the European Union launched two separate legal proceedings against the UK after it published plans to unilaterally scrap parts of the Protocol, such as the need for checks on goods coming from Britain to Northern Ireland. However, the UK government claims the legislation does not break international law.
Addressing the plans, Irish Taoiseach Micheal Martin told BBC’s Sunday Morning programme: “The unilateral decision of the British government to bring in legislation to undermine or to give the power to undermine almost all aspects of the protocol is not acceptable.”
