May speaks out strongly against it then abstains? Dont understand this shizzle at all.

Lots of abstainers who if theyd voted couldve meant a difference...

Teresa May is one of the most evil politicians on the planet. She ran the home office and talked about a hostile environment for immigrants. Evil bitch.

Her opposition is all do do with Johnson knifing her between the shoulder blades rather than any great moralistic stance against the Brits' illegal actions. She's as poisonous as the rest of those Tory scum.

Brexit is a fóidín_mearaí. , which is a  spot of ground on which one is supposed to be led astray, a cause of confusion.
It's a clusterfuck. It makes everything worse.

EU would allow 'green lane' for goods into N Ireland - Šefčovič

The EU would allow a green lane for goods being imported into Northern Ireland from Britain as part of a "robust offer" to resolve difficulties over the Protocol, according to its chief Brexit negotiator Maroš Šefčovič.

However Mr Šefčovič, speaking at a Bloomberg event, said it would not be possible to do away with checks completely.

He also said that the EU will not negotiate on the basis of the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill currently going through the British parliament which he said is a breach of international law.

Under the offer made last October and fleshed out two weeks ago he said the EU had gone the extra mile.

The proposals would reduce sanitary and phytosanitary checks by more than 80%, cut customs paperwork in half, create a green lane for goods destined for Northern Ireland, simpler certification and allow the movement of goods that had been restricted such as chilled meats.

"This robust offer can work, and it can work fast," he said, pointing out that the medicines supply issue had been resolved.

However he warned that the EU has its limits.

"We must protect the integrity of the EU's Single Market and our consumers," Mr Šefčovič said.

"It is simply unrealistic – and unfair – for London to expect that all barriers can be lifted when goods move to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.

"On this, the UK government needs to be honest at home and respectful vis-ŕ-vis the EU. Zero checks is not an option."

He said there could be an option of putting a sticker on goods destined for Northern Ireland.

However he said the pre-Brexit reality is no longer an option.

"I can bring as many solutions to the table as possible, and I have done so, but I cannot force political will on someone else’s behalf," Mr Šefčovič.

And yet at the House of Commons they continually speak of the EU not shifting, being difficult etc.  Someone's not telling the truth and I know who I believe

It looks like they haven’t even bothered trying to negotiate with the eu at all. The protocol is just something to stick two fingers up to the eu with. I dunno if they are looking leverage with it or what.

The lcc and the dup are pawns. Someone is getting shafted here and it is just a question of who. Let’s hope it is the dup but who knows.

When you think they can’t find someone as bad as they have they wheel out another one. Truss a shameless, self serving flat out liar as bad as most of the rest of them.
