Call for 'cool heads to prevail'

The EU Commission this afternoon said the EU “does not accept the argument that the aim of the draft Bill is to protect the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement. In fact, it is of the view that it does the opposite”.

Commenting, Best for Britain CEO Naomi Smith said:

“Any trust the EU may have had in the U.K. government appears to have evaporated. With so much at stake – not least peace in Northern Ireland – it is imperative that the Prime Minister moves immediately to restore some international faith in the trustworthiness of our country. Brand Britain has been toxified.

“It is not just our future relationship with the EU that is at risk here: the US has made it clear that a trans-Atlantic trade deal would be scuppered in the event that Britain fails to honour the Good Friday Agreement.

“For all our sakes, it’s time for cool heads to prevail.”
