Seems the Brits are unilaterally extending the "grace" period for agri foods coming from England/Scotland/Wales to the end of November ....
Trying to weasel out of the whole Agreement?

The Frost Factor, think it's officially his 3rd day in post. He'll burn bridges left, right and centre, resign further down the line and leave someone else to clear up his mess.

EU may well respond by saying if UK is not going to respect single market by checking non-standard goods entering via North, they will have to block those goods from North entering EU. That would seriously hurt fishermen and farmers for starters. Might get very messy and hurt a lot of businesses. As usual Unionists will accept no responsibility for mess that ensues.

So Loyalist Paramilitaries have withdrawn support for GFA until NI Protocol is scrapped. This will all play well for Unionism and UK Govt in short term as they can blame EU.
Think itís called Project Fear

It does not matter what 1st battalion Tigers Bay Red Hand Defenders want

NI is no longer under exclusive British Control.
The Brits signed an international agreement when it signed the protocol.

If the Brits renege on it they can forget about a trade deal with the US.
The Euros will no doubt tell.them that there is a very simple solution. Sign.up to the EU's sanitary and phytosanitary standards. Tigers Bay could have its sausages.

The whole thing is a joke.

Agree Seafoid but strategic thinking isnít something that is readily associated with hardline loyalist such as DUP and their paramilitary friends.
Not only is US deal under threat but I imagine the Free Trade deal with EU or elements of it must be under threat.

Or better still block all GB goods from coming into the EU until they see sense...

I presume the UK gov is nowhere near prepared for the 1st of April with no personnel or processes in place like what happened the GB fishermen who went looking for veterinary certificates for their catches only to find out DEARA hadn't enough vets in place yet all along the Gov were blaming businesses for not being ready.
