Boris Johnson told Conservative MPs that legislation that violates international law by rewriting parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement is “essential to prevent a foreign power from destroying our country.”
The Prime Minister addressed a video call to MPs urging them to support the UK Domestic Market Bill, which begins next Monday in the House of Commons.
“We must not go back to the miserable and tumultuous days of last autumn,” he said.
Three former Conservative leaders and senior party backbenchers have warned against moving ahead with legislation that the government has agreed to violate international law. The number of dissidents to defeat the bills in the Commons is considered too small, but they can be amended or delayed in the House of Lords.
The European Union (EU) has threatened to take legal action against Britain if it does not withdraw its bills by the end of September, but British government sources on Friday said the column had reduced its influence in negotiations for a free trade agreement.
The British talks will travel to Brussels next week for further talks. The view on Dingning Street is that states are often at odds over an issue.
“This week’s conversations are relatively positive than you expected, but ultimately progress will determine whether they get more realism from key areas of deviation. When we start discussions about the essence of some problems, the big key areas remain unresolved. We will talk in Brussels next week, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
British sources have accused the European Union of undermining talks on the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol by threatening to remove Britain from the list of safe countries allowed to export food to the EU. This prevents food producers in Great Britain from selling their products in Northern Ireland and exporting them to the European Union.
The right to export is the ultimate basis of the relationship between the two countries that trade in agricultural products. It is licensed for export and is completely different from the food standards. It is unusual for the European Union to go this far and deny the UK listing, “said a British government spokesman.
The bills would allow British ministers to decide which goods are moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, which are likely to go to the European Union single market, and which paperwork should be used on goods moving in other directions. The ministers will also determine the extent of the need for the UK to inform the EU of business subsidies affecting trade between Northern Ireland and the European Union.
Earlier, European Minister of State for Home Affairs Thomas Byrne said: “It is completely wrong to say that this is to protect the Good Friday agreement.
“It simply came to our notice then. I think what needs to happen now is for the UK to repeal these particular legal provisions that the UK is proposing through a law through Parliament. ”
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today program, he added: “What they intend to do is endanger the very foundation of peace on the island of Ireland.
“The basis of our trade and uninterrupted trade is the border of the goods that are absolutely essential to that peace.”
The European Union (EU) on Friday tightened its grip on Brexit plans after the Johnson government refused to withdraw its plan to violate a four-year-old Brussels divorce agreement.
The European Union (EU) has demanded that Britain suspend its plans to break the divorce agreement by the end of this month. Britain has denied that parliament has sovereignty over international law.
“When the United Kingdom looks at what kind of trade relationship it wants with the European Union in the future, one of the preconditions is to respect existing agreements,” said Pascal Donoho, chairman of the Eurozone finance ministry.
“The United Kingdom needs to respond to this call [European] Commission. ”
As the atmosphere between London and Brussels intensified, it meant that Japan and Britain had reached an agreement in principle on a bilateral trade agreement, which meant that 99 per cent of Britain’s exports to Japan would be tariff-free.
Investment banks have increased their figures on the possibility of a UK exit from the trade and political alliance that joined the UK in 1973, and sterling has fallen against the dollar and the euro.
