Boris Johnson must stick to his “primary responsibility” as Prime Minister and safeguard the integrity of the United Kingdom, according to Nigel Farage, who is dealing with a difficult situation in Northern Ireland. Mr Farage stated that the Protocol’s movement and trade difficulties must be addressed, and that Mr Johnson must stand up to Ursula Von Der Leyen in order to put the subject to rest.

“Well, Ursula Von Der Leyen was more than eager to bring back a hard Irish border during the height of her fear over vaccines,” Mr Farage added, urging Mr Johnson to be firm and show the UK could not be bullied.
“And the irony of that seems to have escaped everyone’s notice and has been forgotten.

“Perhaps Northern Ireland was the Barnier poison pill hidden inside the deal, but as Kate points out, for the long run, and especially given.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
