Brexit: Ben Habib urges UK to ‘pull the plug’ on negotiations

 

In particular, the former Brexit Party MEP claimed the public did not vote to leave by 52 percent to 48 percent in 2016 to have left Northern Ireland “largely in the EU”. Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Habib claimed the future ramifications for Northern Ireland will only be realised in the years to come following Brexit. Not only did Mr Habib hit out at the “annexation” of Northern Ireland but he also claimed the Prime Minister has “deceived” British voters over the assurances of an oven-ready trade deal.

Mr Habib said: “I don’t think people understand what’s happened in Northern Ireland.

“Over time, people will realise what an awful thing has happened with Northern Ireland.

“We did not vote for Northern Ireland to be annexed.

 

“We didn’t vote for a border down the Irish Sea, we didn’t vote for any of that.

“Boris Johnson has deceived the British people by saying he has an ‘oven-ready deal’ to take the UK out of the EU.

“He knew that wasn’t true.”

In the lead up to the general election in 2019, Mr Johnson stated the UK had a deal with the EU ready to go and “oven-ready”.

However, the Government later claimed the Prime Minister was referring to the withdrawal agreement.

The withdrawal agreement was signed on January 24 following Mr Johnson’s large election victory.

Within the withdrawal agreement, the two sides also signed the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The Northern Ireland Protocol was agreed in order to stop the creation of a hard border on the island of Ireland.

The protocol will keep Northern Ireland within the UK’s customs territory.

However, it also states Northern Ireland will adhere to the EU’s single market rules for trade.

From next year, no checks will take place between the Republic and Northern Ireland as the two will be in the same regulatory alignment.

Checks will need to be made for goods entering Northern Ireland from Great Britain due to the creation of a new regulatory border down the Irish Sea.

Under the Internal Market Bill, the Government had tried to remove certain elements of the withdrawal agreement.

In particular, the elements relating to state aid and customs-exit declarations.

Due to this, the EU had threatened to end talks and begin legal proceedings.

After a meeting with European Commission vice-president Maros Sefcovic earlier this month, the UK agreed to remove some elements of the legislation.

The move was heralded as a major breakthrough during Brexit talks.

A joint statement said: “Following intensive and constructive work over the past weeks by the EU and the UK, the two co-chairs can now announce their agreement in principle on all issues, in particular with regard to the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland.

“An agreement in principle has been found in the following areas, amongst others: border control posts/entry points specifically for checks on animals, plants and derived products, export declarations, the supply of medicines, the supply of chilled meats, and other food products to supermarkets, and a clarification on the application of State aid under the terms of the Protocol.”
