Brandon Lewis accuses EU of being “disingenuous” over Northern Ireland Protocol

Brandon Lewis has accused the EU of being “disingenuous” about offering “flexibilities” on the Northern Ireland Protocol. He told the BBC’s Sunday Morning programme: “What they’ve been saying consistently across the media and have been reported as saying is that they’re offering flexibilities. Well, they’re not. “What the EU are offering is some flexibility based on a fully-implemented protocol. That would be, actually, worse than the situation we’ve got today.” He added: “So, I do think they’ve been disingenuous in suggesting they’re being flexible when in fact they’ve not shown the flexibility that’s required to resolve these issues for the people of Northern Ireland.”
