Under the protocol, which prevents a hard Irish border, Northern Ireland continues to follow EU rules for medicines and medical equipment, meaning new checks are due to be imposed when a year-long grace period expires at the end of 2021.

Medicines made in Britain – which account for the vast majority imported into the province – will also have to have separate licenses, testing and inspections before they can be used.

There is no reason to be doing this – other than to punish for the temerity in leaving. That they are doing it is reason enough to leave – who wants to be in political union with slime like this?

    How many manufacturers of medicines and medical that are produced in rUK don’t want to export them to the EU? my guess is that most will already have a licence and that this is building mountains out of molehills.

  2. @RlJ: It doesn’t matter how many divisions she has, as experience shows they would be unlikely to have ammunition…

  3. I really hope the UK is forging as many trade links as quickly as possible before the end of 2021 so they can safely dump the protocol while minimising the effect of EU retaliation.

  4. The EU tried to stop our exit by attempting to provoke a terrorist war in N Ireland. That’s reasons enough, in my view, either to nuke Brussels or … pipe dream territory: get the SAS to capture the Commission and bring them here for a War Crimes trial.

    At Nuremberg, according to WKPD –
    The indictments were for:
    Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of a crime against peace
    Planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace.

    So, a war crime indeed. And we’d get to hang ’em.
