Johnson: Trade war with EU would be preposterous

[view original post]

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated on Monday that it would be “perverse” and “preposterous” if the European Union introduced restrictions on trade with the United Kingdom in response to the UK’s bill seeking to unilaterally change the Northern Ireland Protocol. He claimed the UK is only trying to “have some bureaucratic simplifications between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”

“We have to understand there are two traditions in Northern Ireland, broadly two ways of looking at the border issues, and one community at the moment feels very, very estranged from the way things are operating and very alienated. And we just got to fix that… Frankly, it’s a relatively trivial set of adjustments in the grand scheme of things,” Johnson told LBC in an interview.
