Boris Johnson Seeks Support From Tory MPs Over Brexit Bill

Boris Johnson has urged Conservative MPs to support his plan to override part of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement. He said the party must not return to “miserable squabbling’’ over Europe in a zoom call with over 250 of the MPs.

The European Union warned the UK about facing legal action should it fail to ditch controversial elements of the Internal Market Bill. And a Tory MP has proposed the bill to be amended which would affect trade between Britain and North Ireland. Be that as it may, the European Parliament will scupper any UK-EU deal should the bill become UK law.

Mr. Johnson says he is ready to walk away from the deal if they don’t meet his October 15th deadline. This means that the two sides have less than 5 weeks to agree on a deal. Either to go forward or lose it all.

Informal talks on the matter are due to resume on Monday with the next official round of talks starting in Brussels on September 28.

The Internal Market Bill if it became law would give UK ministers powers to modify rules of movement of goods between Britain and North Ireland. But this only works if the UK and EU fail to strike a trade deal.

However, the EU believes the planned changes risk jeopardizing the UK-EU trade talks therefore they must be scrapped. But the UK government has rejected this demand saying the measures protect UK’s integrity and Northern Ireland’s peace process.


In a column in the Daily Telegraph, Mr. Boris Johnson defended the government’s plans to override parts of the Withdrawal Agreement.

He accused the EU of adopting an “extreme” interpretation of the Northern Ireland Protocol to impose “a full-scale trade border down the Irish Sea” that could stop the transport of food from Britain to Northern Ireland.

“I have to say that we never seriously believed that the EU would be willing to use a treaty. To negotiate in good faith, to blockade one part of the UK, to cut it off,” he said.

The PM said it had become clear that there might be a “serious misunderstanding” between the UK and EU. This could be over the Withdrawal Agreement.

The UK must be protected from what he called a “disaster” of the EU being able to “carve up our country” and “endanger peace and stability in Northern Ireland”.
