The United Kingdom demands a change in the post-Rex agreement, and the Union must be more pragmatic

The British government said on Wednesday that the post-Rexite trade rules agreed with the EU “could not continue” and needed to be amended. Following Britain’s exit from the EU’s economic zone at the end of 2020, relations deteriorated due to trade arrangements for Northern Ireland, the only part of the UK with 27 member land borders.

Under the agreement, customs controls would be imposed on certain goods moving between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom.

Very systematic approach

The aim is to open the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, a member of the European Union. However, the restrictions have angered Northern Unionists, who say they are creating a border in the Irish Sea and weakening Northern Ireland’s relations with other parts of the United Kingdom.

Britain accuses the EU of taking a “formal” approach to rules that create unnecessary bureaucracy for companies. It therefore calls on the London Union to show “pragmatism”.

Burden on companies

British Brexit Minister David Frost said Britain had tried to implement the agreements “in good faith” but had placed a heavy burden on companies and society in Northern Ireland. “Simply put, we can’t go on like this.” Said Wednesday in the upper house of the British Parliament.

Frost said There are circumstances that justify the use of Section 16. Contract, which allows the contract to be terminated by one party in a serious situation. “However, we have come to the conclusion that there is no time for that now.” The Minister further said.
