    We need to face facts, that this Tory government has split the Union

    If there were government sitting at Stormont chances are we probably wouldn’t be getting into this kind of muddle. It seems that government has to manage the reality that for all intents and purposes NI has been left behind in the EU SM and for this reason some legislation is required for postal packets as well. Government is only doing it’s job tidying up anomalies all caused I might add by Rt Hon Sammy Wilsons brexit.

      Exactly right, these problems only exist because of Brexit. Sammy Wilson should be asked why he voted for Brexit, he was warned over and over again about the problems it would cause for Northern Ireland

    So the Minister confesses “These regulations are in fact an enabler to the agreement that we have negotiated”..

    Very well, then let us have the full benefit of Northern Ireland being on its way to exiting our Union by accelerating the process and saving the billions in annual subsidy.

    These Ministers suffer congestive dissonance. They say contradictory things in the same sentence and seem unaware, you can’t reason with them and arguments are irrelevant.
    Time for the men in white coats (For their own safety).

    Keep going Sir John. The Sunak government is weak or untrustworthy or both. The Sunak Framework is a complete sell-out to the EU and we can expect a continuing flow of legislation, SI’s and decisions separating Northern Ireland from GB.

    Not everything has to have the consent of the Unionist community – there are other people and other considerations as well. Also the demographics in NI have changed and the Unionists are in the minority now – they do not hold sway any more and time is not on their side.
