Boris Johnson told Tory MPs that a proposed bill that contravenes international law is absolutely essential to stop the break up of our country.
The Prime Minister made the comments to Conservative politicians through a video link as he debated the controversial UK Internal Markets Bill.
Boris Johnson said the ruling, which will override parts of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, was needed to end EU threats to establish a blockade in the Irish Sea and to prevent a foreign force from breaking up our country.
The Prime Minister said Brussels could carve up our country and seriously threaten peace and stability in Northern Ireland if Conservative MPs rebel to stop his Bill.
The all-hands virtual meeting was called as backbench opposition to his plans threatened to develop into a full-scale rebellion, but the video conference call was overrun by technical problems, with the Prime Minister’s connection dropping out completely at one point, leaving about 250 MPs waiting for him to rejoin the call, and he told MPs there would be no time for them to ask questions at the conference.
Boris Johnson, furthermore wrote in a media outlet that they’re now hearing that unless they agree to the EU’s terms, the EU will use an extreme interpretation of the Northern Ireland protocol to impose a full-scale trade border down the Irish Sea.
And that they’re being informed that the EU will not only set taxes on goods moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland but that they might actually prevent the transport of food products from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
But Boris Johnson stated that he never seriously thought that the EU would be willing to use a Treaty, negotiated in good faith, to blockade one part of the United Kingdom, to cut it off, or that they would even threaten to obliterate the economic and territorial integrity of the United Kingdom.
And he said in the last few weeks he’s learnt that his intermediaries had found there may have been a profound misunderstanding about the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement he signed in October.
Boris Johnson asserted it was agreed during torrid days with the deadline for an agreement fast approaching while negotiating with one hand bound behind their backs because Parliament blocked a no-deal.
He said that if they fail to pass this bill, or if they deplete its protections then they will, in fact, lower the odds of getting that Canada style deal, and he said: “Let’s remove this danger to the very fabric of the United Kingdom so that they can make the EU take their threats off the table”.
Unfortunately, Boris Johnson violates international laws every time he opens his mouth.
He’s a typical rich boy who only cares about himself because he wants to be in control and he’s let down this country, and because of him some students will never be permitted to study in Europe again and nobody will ever believe again that England is a trustworthy nation.
But at the end of the day, both sides are playing games, banging the drums before the last battle, trying to get the best deal possible.
Unfortunately, for Boris Johnson, he doesn’t appear to have done anything right in his life and his addresses are littered with total incompetence and it’s surprising that the man can even tie his own shoelaces.
And every day brings more evidence of the profound duplicity of the mega-rich Tories who exploited the masses to vote for Brexit. Yes, we were all duped by the Tories and their wealthy mates and when it all goes belly up, which it will, they will all go and live in their second homes somewhere – nothing much will change for them, it will be the rest of us that will suffer for generations to come.
