“World” editorial. Brexit threatens peace in Northern Ireland. This dramatic evidence is not a discovery. Two weeks before the British decision to withdraw from the European Union (EU) referendum in June 2016, John Major and Tony Blair jointly issued this solemn warning from Delhi.
Two former British prime ministers, the creators of the 1998 peace agreement that ended 30 years of bloody civil war, know what they are talking about. No one in London wants to hear their voices. Five years later, the eight nights of violence experienced by the British province sounded like a terrible confirmation of their warning.
If youths from unionist areas born after the “trouble” (in favor of Protestants staying in the UK) confront the police with stones and Molotov cocktails, it is because they feel that their “community is declining, and Has been betrayed. In January, customs control was introduced between the UK and IrelandYes In January, there was a temporary shortage of shops in Northern Ireland. This new “Irish Sea Border” first destroyed the notion of belonging to the same country. This choice was made by Boris Johnson, the leader of the Conservative Party. His “unionism” is one of the basic principles and can only confirm the impression of betrayal.
Mr. Johnson condemned the violence today. The facts force us to say that he is responsible for it. The border of the Irish Sea?this needs “Let me over the body”, He boasted in August 2020 shortly after signing the breakup agreement with the European Union that established the agreement. The political choices of the British Prime Minister created a need for regulation: the difficult choice for Brexit included his country’s withdrawal from the European Customs Union. In order to keep the border between the two Irelands open, which is a condition for peacekeeping, the only solution is through inspections in the Irish Sea, and these inspections have angered the Unionists.
The British Prime Minister has repeatedly lied and promised Northern Irish people “Best of both worlds” -The province is both in the United Kingdom and in the European Union’s single commodity market-Increasing the denial of its signature. London unilaterally suspended Northern Ireland’s control and violated the Brexit Agreement. This is the subject of the complaint by 27 .
