Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The British government has already used the preposterous charge that the Northern Ireland protocol of the amounts to a food blockade as an excuse to push an Internal Market Bill that not only breaks the Withdrawal Agreement but also undermines the rule of law within the UK.

That this is all preposterous special pleading doesn't mean we shouldn't be concerned. I guess the only reason for optimism may be that deep down the English don't give a toss about Northern Ireland.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
