A UK law violating certain Brexit agreements with the European Union has a first majority in the UK parliament. Despite warnings from Europe, the House of Commons agreed by 340 to 256 votes. Now Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s proposal has to go to the House of Lords.
British media report that. The prime minister had recently made commitments to critical Conservative party members to win them over. For example, some of the opponents think that the government in London should not violate international law.
With his law, Johnson overrides important provisions in the current agreement on the British exit from the EU. Brussels speaks shame about it, but the British Prime Minister believes his law is necessary to avoid a split between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Johnson doesn’t want Northern Ireland to deviate from the rest of the UK. Because the area borders the EU member state Ireland, it had been agreed with the EU that different trade rules would apply in Northern Ireland.
