Will new UK-EU deal over Northern Ireland end the Brexit impasse?

By: Within story

The British leader is negotiating with the European Union to replace the Northern Ireland Protocol.

UK and EU leaders have struck a new deal for Northern Ireland’s post-Brexit trade arrangements.

Customs controls and paperwork for goods entering Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK began post-Brexit.

Pro-British Unionists say this weakened Northern Ireland’s position in the UK and refused to take a seat in the power-sharing government in Belfast.

The new deal – the Windsor Framework – aims to make trading easier.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak speaks of a “decisive breakthrough” and a new start for relations with the EU.

According to the President of the European Commission, Ursula Von Der Leyen, both parties can start a “new chapter” with the deal.

Is Brexit finally done – or will there be more objections?
