This is the deal that Johnson negotiated, Johnson signed. The deal he told us was 'fantastic'. There'd be no paperwork between GB and NI ('Chuck it in the bin'). So why is it up to the EU to take action? Johnson's deal - Johnson needs to sort it.
The DUP are using this as an excuse to stir up local loyalist thugs. The EU needs to act to stop them.

The DUP have a long history of this.

Interesting that you have four down votes for a factually accurate statement. It just shows that the EU Commissioners could eat new born babies in their restaurants and some here would see nothing wrong in it.
"It just shows that the EU Commissioners could eat new born babies in their restaurants and some here would see nothing wrong in it."

The pro-EU Brits remind me of those that were starry-eyed about the Nazis or the USSR. So impressed are they that they will NEVER accept that the EU could do any wrong.

They will never apologise or accept they were wrong, they will just fade into oblivion.

Love the remoaners out on force AGAIN. They hate the fact the EU has exposed themselves that the slightest rattling of their regime (vaccine shambles) they will punish anyone that gets in their way.

Leavers keep pointing out the "Danger" of the EU after the reversed decision to restrict vaccine imports to the UK

1) If the vaccines we were promised, made in the UK, were going to the EU instead, what would we have done?

2) The REASON this action is a danger to us is BECAUSE of Brexit. Now that we don't have an open border, this sort of thing can occur when they try to protect their interests.
