Nancy Pelosi and top Biden Democrats have been called “fundamentally ignorant” regarding Northern Ireland by senior UK Government officials who think they are getting orders from Sinn Fein.

Nancy Pelosi accused of following orders from Sinn Fein, described as “fundamentally ignorant” by a UK official.

The UK government is “frustrated” by Ms Pelosi’s new involvement from Washington DC and as a key advisor to the Biden administration.

It follows a determined campaign by top Democrats to undermine the UK Government, including threats to obstruct a UK/US trade pact over Boris Johnson’s attempts to fix the loathed Northern Ireland Protocol, which threatens peace in Northern Ireland.

The Democrats have always been against Brexit, but they have decided to side with the EU even though Brussels is not willing to compromise. Speaking to the Express, a UK government source said Pelosi and other Democrats are “fundamentally ignorant of the situation in Northern Ireland.”

Adding that Pelosi is “blinded by her assertion that the UK is ‘occupying NI’ – which she has said verbatim before.”

The source continued: “Many of them [the Democrats] have an emotional connection to Ireland, rather than an academic or policy or even political interest, so they parrot the Irish Government position on things with no interrogation or recognition of nuances – not true of the administration but certainly true elsewhere.”

US resistance to Protocol modifications “improved slightly after all the visits and meetings [Northern Ireland Secretary] Brandon [Lewis] has done over last couple of years on a range of Northern Irish issues (including legacy) – more of them at least acknowledge that there are always at least two sides to these things now.”

“Pelosi obviously not one of them! She gets wound up by Sinn Fein and off she goes”

“This was the motivation for her ‘intervention’ this week – apparently. Some robust lobbying from Sinn Fein.”

In a statement over its plans to reform the hated Northern Ireland Protocol.

Ms Pelosi said: “The Good Friday Accords are the bedrock of peace in Northern Ireland and a beacon of hope for the entire world.”

“Ensuring there remains no physical border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland is absolutely necessary for upholding this landmark agreement, which has transformed Northern Ireland.

“It is deeply concerning that the United Kingdom now seeks to unilaterally discard the Northern Ireland Protocol, which preserves the important progress and stability forged by the Accords.”
