Brexit news latest – Boris Johnson BLASTS reckless EU for ‘casting doubt’ on Good Friday Agreement as NI tensions spiral
BORIS Johnson has laid into the EU for appearing to cast doubt on the Good Friday Agreement.
The PM lashed out at the bloc’s reckless decision to try to create a border on the island of Ireland last week in what was to become a rapidly-reversed attempt to punish the UK for the EU’s bugled covid vaccine rollout.
Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions today, the PM said “It was most regrettable that the EU should seem to cast doubt on the Good Friday agreement, the principles of the peace process”.
“We will work to ensure that there are no such borders, we will respect the peace process and, indeed, no barriers down the Irish Sea” he added.
His comments come amid spiraling tensions in Northern Ireland, where anonymous threats have been made against UK and EU customs officials over border checks on goods travelling from Northern Ireland into Britain.
