Theresa May slams PM Boris Johnson over withdrawal agreement changes


The former Prime Minister Theresa May has scolded her successor and current PM Boris Johnson over reported changes to the Northern Ireland protocol in the withdrawal agreement signed by Boris Johnson last year. 

As brought to you by UNN’s Carl Pearson yesterday, Mr Johnson is expected to outline a number of technical amendments to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, with some suggesting that these will allow the government to override the exit deal struck with the European Union.


Mrs May saw her tenure as PM come to an end after a number of commons defeat on Brexit and she told Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis: “The United Kingdom Government signed the withdrawal agreement with the Northern Ireland protocol. This Parliament voted for the withdrawal agreement into UK legislation. The government is now changing the operation of that agreement. Given that, how can the Government reassure future international partners that the UK can be trusted to abide by the legal obligations of the agreements it signs?”. 

However, the chairman of the European Research Group Bernard Jenkin has backed the PM’s potential plans. In a statement he released today he said: “If we don’t reach a deal with the EU, Brexit is not done until the UK government succeeds in its determination to assert its own interpretation of the Withdrawal Agreement. If the EU is unwilling to do a deal with us, there are two options. The first is to enact domestic legislation that will largely nullify the direct effect and direct applicability of EU law. We have the mandate and majority to do this. Second, if the EU insists on an unreasonable interpretation of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK must stand ready to repudiate it”. 

Some were extremely angry by Mrs May’s intervention. The Twitter user @Deedy2201 said: “Still showing her dedication to the EU and demonstrating again how she was prepared to sell Britain out. Thank God she was ousted. She does not belong in our Government”.
