Boris Johnson reiterates threat to suspend Northern Ireland protocol | The Guardian |

Speaking to Sky News after Macron and other EU leaders used meetings on the sidelines of the summit to urge him to compromise, Johnson hit back, claiming the EU was constructing "all kinds of impediments" instead of applying the protocol "sensibly".

"I think we can sort it out, but it is up to our EU friends and partners to understand that we will do whatever it takes," he said. "If the protocol continues to be applied in this way, then we will obviously not hesitate to invoke article 16, as I have said before".
