Attorney General Suella Braverman was interviewed on Sky News where she openly stated the European Court of Justice should have no part in internal political disputes that affect the UK.
Suella Braverman who is a Brexiteer and took over from former Attorney General Geoffrey Cox stated: “The effects of those problems (protocol) are visible for everyone to see.”
“We have seen the collapse of Stormont so that people in Northern Ireland are not going to be getting the services that they deserve because of a paralysis in their Government.”
“We’ve seen more burdens and costs imposed on traders based in Northern Ireland because of excessive bureaucracy affected by the EU’s application of the rules in the Protocol, so there are problems and we want to get Stormont back up and running, we want to ensure Northern Ireland placed within the territory of the United Kingdom is secured and reassured and that’s why these proposals are very important.”
“The European Court of Justice should not be the final arbiter of disputes between the UK and the EU and the Bill that we have considered introducing will reflect that.”
