    Default Economic Sanctions against the UK

    Britain has already breached the withdrawal agreement by tabling the internal market bill, prompting Brussels to plan legal action that could lead to financial and trade sanctions, according to a leaked EU legal opinion.

    The European commission believes Boris Johnson’s government breached the terms of the treaty just by taking the first steps to pass a new law that would negate key parts of the agreement signed last year.

    “Already by tabling the draft bill and pursuing the policy expressed therein, the UK government is in violation of the good faith obligation under the withdrawal agreement (article 5) because this bill jeopardises the attainment of the objectives of the agreement”, the commission lawyers write.

    So what? What is the EU going to do about it? They need us more than we need them! They know we hold all the cards! Typical Brussel

    They won't need to apply sanctions... not after the US has washed its hands of Boris as well.

    That's just another issue Boris isn't bright enough to understand - it requires a second idea following on from the first and his brain can't hold 2 thoughts at a time.

    It's a win-win for the gammons.

    Tell Johnny Foreigner where to go, and then enjoy the full WW2 Dig for Victory experience.

    He will blame the Irish, both sides of the border, not realising he's the leader of the Conservative and Unionist party.

    .. because this bill jeopardises the attainment of the objectives of the agreement
    Those objectives being to maintain the UK as a client state, subject to all EU laws and with no say in them.

    No thanks!
