Guardian: Brexit: Northern Ireland loyalist armies renounce Good Friday Agreement
A body that claims to represent loyalist paramilitary organisations has told Boris Johnson the outlawed groups are withdrawing support for Northern Ireland's historic peace agreement.

The Loyalist Communities Council (LCC) said the groups were temporarily withdrawing their backing of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement amid mounting concerns about the contentious Northern Ireland Protocol governing Irish Sea trade post-Brexit.

However, they stressed that unionist opposition to the protocol should remain "peaceful and democratic".

Not good.

It may take a couple of years before they return to violence, e.g., bombs in Dublin, but they are on that trajectory.
