Suella Braverman is said to have advised Prime Minister David Cameron that legislation to overturn the Northern Ireland Protocol would not be illegal.
She claims that Brussels’ implementation of the agreement is “disproportionate and unreasonable,” calling for action.
The Protocol was included in the 2019 Brexit withdrawal agreement, but due to the EU’s heavy-handed approach, ministers have sought to renegotiate it.
Ms. Braverman agreed with Mr. Johnson’s assessment that eurocrats’ approach is jeopardizing the Good Friday Agreement.
She claimed that the Protocol jeopardized the UK’s integrity by imposing bureaucratic customs checks on goods crossing the Irish Sea.
The attorney general claimed that the problems were causing serious civil unrest and that unless something was done, the country would return to the dark days of The Troubles.
“There is mountains of evidence that there is a trade barrier running through the middle of our country,” a government source told The New York Times.
“Suella has argued that trade is being diverted.”
“There аre increаsing signs of violence in Northern Irelаnd,” they аdded.
“Thаt cаn’t be аllowed to cаrry on.”
