LONDON (Reuters) - Britain has asked for an extension until 2023 of a grace period on checks that would be conducted on trade moving between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom to soften the Brexit impact on the province, the BBC reported.

 

Political editor Laura Kuenssberg said Cabinet Office Secretary Michael Gove had written to the European Commission’s vice president, Maros Sefcovic, to ask for urgent political solutions.

 

As part of the Brexit divorce deal, the two sides agreed a three-month grace period on checks on food goods being moved by supermarkets and some wholesale groups from Britain to Northern Ireland, to ease the impact of the post-Brexit new rules.

"Ummm... I know we agreed three months, mem mem mem, but we might need a little bit longer, mem?"

 

"how long?"

 

"Ummm... two years, mem mem mem?"

 

("Mem" = sound of sniveling Tory smarminess.)

An excellent opportunity for the EU to make amends for their disgraceful tantrum over the results of their own failure to order vaccines until months after everyone else had.

This is like asking the mugger who is giving you a severe kicking if he can lend you your busfare home.

It’s more akin to resigning from a club, giving them the ‘birdy’ on your way out the door then going groveling to be allowed membership

rights.

 

Comedy gold.

A "tantrum" that had no practical consequences? What damage did the UK suffer as a result? More like a contrived gambit to obscure the ill-preparedness of the UK govt.

In all fairness I think that Ursula von Leyens actions have just showed the lack of consideration for the people living in N & S of Ireland. The damage she has done is totally unrepairable knowing that she can just flick a switch and put peoples lives in danger. 

Do they really need an extension, I would suggest not, we cannot live under the threat of the EU using NI as a pawn when it suits them. She has angered both sides of the border now with her thoughtlessness.

The UK sets off on a self harming Brexit and when the harm starts hurting we get the inevitable blaming the very people who

warned of the consequences.

 

It’s always somebody else’s fault!

What exactly did they actually do with regards to the vaccine. Oh right, they got criticized and changed course. So corrupt of them to accept valid criticism.

Well the facts of the matter seem to be ‘out but want back into the privileges of membership’.

 

What a right Brexit mess this is.

very cleaver and the right thing to do as the EU implodes 

 

Brussels have lost the plot and have been exposed for what they really are 

 

 

All the UK wants is trade - how simple can it be

Not granting diplomatic status to the EU representative is surely the best way to get a positive reply! 😁

The EU is not a country or Nation  - it is supposed to be a trading block, until something changes that is how it is

 

I believe there are many embassies in the UK from  EU "countries"

The deal was reached with almost a trusted sort of gentleman's agreement and the first to abuse it and break that agreement  in a matter of weeks was who - and how do we get rid of her - well nobody elected her - but this numb nut has made a huge error

I was trying to think of how I could put it into words

nothing to add 

 

but we do need to pay a little respect for other members on here that might not be members of the now mighty UK community - we may have people posting here that are not from the UK - can you spot them lol

 

how is the Euro doing these last few of weeks - it seems to be dropping like a lead balloon - who do we blame for that 

 

The UK lol
