Brussels launches legal action against UK over Brexit breach
The European Commission today launched twin-track legal action against the British government over its decision to unilaterally delay the introduction of post-Brexit checks on goods entering Northern Ireland from Great Britain.

The EU executive body said in a statement that it had sent two letters to the U.K. government, which contain threats of two different paths for legal proceedings against London should the British government not be willing to settle the dispute via negotiations in the coming weeks.

Spoiler alert: Both legal tracks "may ultimately lead to Brussels imposing tariffs on U.K. goods." Frank's EU UK Trade war is slowly shaping up, as predicted. Tomorrow's tabloids eructations are also totally predictable.

Anglo-American Conservative parties seem to be more interested in looting the economy for themselves and their friends and, so far successfully, deflecting the blame for the resulting economic problems to The Other.

In the US The Other is Democrats.

In the UK The Other is the EU.
