Sefcovic LIVE: This isn’t a debate! As a result of a huge speech blunder, the EU mask is shattered, revealing the true plot.
MAROS SEFCOVIC has proposed considerable revisions to the Northern Ireland Protocol, which was agreed upon as part of the Brexit deal, but has refused to bend on the European Court of Justice’s involvement.
In a news conference on Wednesday, European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic announced Brussels’ decision to amend the Northern Ireland Protocol. Mr. Sefcovic indicated that up to 50% of customs checks on British products entering Northern Ireland will be eliminated by the EU. He has promised an 80% reduction in checks and regulations for all retail products entering Northern Ireland, but he has refused to budge on the European Courts of Justice’s participation.
Jayne Adye, Director of the grassroots, cross-party Get Britain Out campaign, responds to Maros Sefcovic’s speech: “Mr Sefcovic also made a mistake in one area.
“He referred to the United Kingdom as a ‘third country’ on several occasions, but he also singled out Northern Ireland as a separate entity.
“This is not the case, as much as the EU would like it to be.
“Northern Ireland is a part of the United Kingdom, and this is not debatable!”
Maros Sefcovic, deputy president of the European Commission, refused to say whether the European Court of Justice problem will be a key sticking point in the upcoming talks.
He reiterated, “Our goal is to keep on a good note.”
Lord David Frost has also urged for the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to be removed from the Protocol’s monitoring.
The ECJ would be the final arbitrator in any future trade dispute between the EU and the UK over how the protocol works, according to the protocol’s rules, which were approved as part of the 2020 Brexit deal.
Lord Frost is now advocating that the ECJ be abolished and replaced with an independent arbitration mechanism.
Mr Sefcovic, on the other hand, has stated unequivocally that the EU would not take action on the ECJ issue.
@adamparsons of Sky asks the European Commission Vice President if Lord Frost’s insistence that the protocol cannot include the European Court of Justice is a “red line” for him.
‘Our goal is to stay on a positive note,’ says Maros Sefcovic.

According to Raoul Ruparel, a former assistant to the prime minister, the “sausage war” may not be ended after all.
