European Movement NI has welcomed suggestions proposed by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to mitigate some of the worst excesses if a ‘Hard Brexit’ is imposed on Northern Ireland. EMNI had argued a ‘Hard Brexit’ is in contravention to the expressed wishes of the people of Northern Ireland, and that there is now no clear mandate for this. Ian Parsley,
The European Movement in Northern Ireland has welcomed a House of Lords Report which has found that the specific circumstances in Northern Ireland give ‘rise to unique issues’ that will need to be addressed during the Brexit negotiations.
The Lords tomorrow consider new Brexit and Devolution proposals. The Government wants the ability to (temporarily in theory) constrain devolved powers, potentially in >100 policy areas, until replacements for EU law are agreed. We @instituteforgov explain: https://t.co/B7KaDO9Blf
Latest draft of Withdrawal Agreement published: https://t.co/S8aERuc2oj.
On Ireland/Northern Ireland 'backstop', agreement on:
- Common Travel Area
- other areas of north-south cooperation
- specialised committee
- replacement of Protocol by subsequent UK-EU agreement
The Irish border issue could still potentially scupper the whole deal.... the Irish border issue has just been pushed further down the road.. it still hasn't been resolved & there will need to be a lot more talks to get it resolved.
