      Breaking international law is actually quite common: https://reaction.life/the-new-brexit-storm/

      Doesn't seem wise in light of ongoing financial services negotiations though.

        There are no negotiations. There's only one party holding all the cards, and the other one not realising it yet.

          We should have followed EU standard practice i.e. beat dissenters senseless as seen in Catalan & Paris. Imagine talking to our opponents when we can have punishment beatings!

          I expect Myanmar to be joining the the EU soon.

            So that’s your best justification for breaking the Treaty that was just signed?

              No that was sarcasm - we are unable to send food to Northern Ireland to feed British subjects because of the treaty we just signed in good faith that was supposed to support this. Sorry feeding our citizens is more important than a treaty in most people's opinion. The reason we seem unable to do so is due to over enthusiasm by EU customs agents.

              One of the reasons we involved the EU in any way is that they are unwilling to either have a hard border between Ireland and the EU (hint there is a sea between so just treating southern Ireland slightly different would be easy) or between Ireland (N&S).

              Who is preventing the food getting over in your opinion?

                They can buy food from EU.

                What’s preventing getting it as easy from GB is Boris and Co who insisted on their version of deal that introduced frictions in trade.

                  That last bit was something both the EU and the UK agreed on.

                  The reason the UK (and Ireland and Northern Ireland) doesn't want a hard border N&S is because the Northern Ireland Protocol, which came out of the Good Friday agreement, included that there must be a practically invisible border between NI and Ireland. Changing the Good Friday agreement in anyway without the agreement of the signatories would be a very bad idea.

                    Agree so we had a choice a Border between the Island of Ireland and the EU or a border between the Island of Ireland and the UK. We chose the later and EU customs are refusing food?
