Boris Johnson has ordered ministers to prepare for the “strong possibility” of a no-deal Brexit and warns that Britain risks “locking itself into the EU`s orbit,” with senior Conservatives pushing it to strike a deal. The rhetoric of Boris Johnson`s British government was uncompromising and ready to jeopardize the fragile peace in Northern Ireland, but this approach also reveals its ignorance of the implications of this attitude. The inconvenient truth is that the impact of this ruthless approach would be much wider than the relationship between the UK, Ireland and the UK and the EU. It would jeopardize the vision of “world Britain,” and thus its centerpiece of a free trade agreement between the United States and Britain, even before it was resurrected. The only certainty is that, in any event, Johnson and his government decide to leave afterwards, it will cause irreparable damage. Part of the Internal Market Act, due to be published on Wednesday, is expected to “remove the legal force of parts of the withdrawal agreement” in areas such as state aid and Northern Ireland`s customs law, the newspaper reported, citing three people familiar with the plans. The announcement of a new Sunday date holds alive hopes of a final breakthrough on the elusive trade deal that many analysts had not theatrically anticipated long before the December 31 deadline. Discussions on a final agreement that could determine the shape of Britain`s relations with continental Europe for decades to come will continue this week. The new agreement stipulates that EU VAT legislation (VAT – a tax if you make purchases) will apply in Northern Ireland, but only to goods and not services. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reached a new withdrawal agreement with the EU.
But he now needs the support of MPs in a vote due to take place in Parliament on Saturday 19 October. If there is no agreement during this two-year period, Ireland could return to a form of hard border, but it is unlikely to happen. There are only two weeks left for Britain and the EU to reach a trade deal after Brexit before the current transitional arrangements expire. John Ryan writes that, as Boris Johnson and his government decide to go next, it seems inevitable that the process will irreparably harm the interests of the United Kingdom. Former minister Stephen Hammond added: “The end of the year without a free trade agreement would be bad for Britain and the EU. I really call on the negotiating teams to find a solution for the good of all European citizens. “We need a level playing field not only for today, but also for tomorrow or the day after, and to do that, we need agreements on how one can react if the other changes the legal situation,” said Ms.
