If the sensible proposals within the bill pass through parliament
It’s not acceptable as it is now
Report lapsy pa June 16, 2022 9:27 AM BST
Is that because NI is relatively prospering while the rest of the UK's economy is dire?
Is it because businesses will move from Britain to NI?
Is it simply because it is showing brexit for what it is,ie the single market is actually a good thing?
Is it to hide the sheer incompetence of Boris's 'great deal?

Are those the reasons why it isn't 'acceptable'?
Report lfc1971 June 16, 2022 10:32 AM BST
Lapsy I will explain to you , again
NI commerce and industry is heavily dependent on trade between GB and NI
This is its marketplace and any checks mean extra costs for companies in NI and GB
These costs will be passed on either to the people of NI or Britain or both
Or else companies will stop trading - that’s not sensible and that’s not acceptable
Hence the very sensible and moderate changes proposed in the new bill
Report lapsy pa June 16, 2022 11:05 AM BST
These companies will have extra costs if they were dealing with France/Germany or any other country in the EU.
Is that not true?

Looks like Stephen Kelly from Manufacturing NI is getting targetted,why? he is telling the truth about economic performance which is not suiting someones agenda.

The MD gave examples of how the sea border hurts his business

he explained how when bringing a box in from Northampton
the haulage company will impose a protocol related surcharge due to the extra paperwork

Then the second half of the paperwork must be completed via the governments TSS service
This may trigger a further customs charge if the import is deemed to have originated from outside the U.K.
But the additional protocol related charges are £ 30-£50 with every shipment whether the item is worth £1 or £50 ,000
His company lists 15,000 components in their system which mostly come from GB

If TSS ends and the EU goes for full implementation of protocol rules then the company will face a further six figure sum
in full custom administration costs

His GB competitors will not incur these costs and have a competitive advantage with duty free access to EU markets
under the TCA free trade agreement

The NIP is a trade agreement like thousands of others ,except it had to quite rightly honour the GFA.
It was short and  like most trade agreements it contained ,safety clauses and provisos ,to allow it to evolve ,be revisited ,modified and changed ,it even had detailed arbitration procedures written into it ,to enable renegotiation.
It has been cruelly hijacked ,to become Catholic v Protestant hysterical emotional outdated bolloxs ,London v Dublin and Macron v BJ ,add in the democrat senile fool ,Pelosi etc and it is a fcup.

I'm quite sure Boris stated it was a great day and a great deal for Britain when they signed it.


Did he not have a clue then?
