A key aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been instructed by a former Government adviser to “mind his own business” and quit “parroting fake EU propaganda” on Brexit.
Announcing the announcement, the speaker herself referred to the Good Friday Agreement as the “bedrock of peace” on the island.
Pelosi went so far as to reaffirm Joe Biden’s warning that if the situation remained unchanged, trade ties between the United States and Great Britain would be adversely affected.
Another high-ranking US official has jumped into the fray in Northern Ireland, where the US continues to show a strong interest.
One of Nancy Pelosi’s closest allies, Rep. Brendan Boyle, from Philadelphia, issued an open warning – threat to the United Kingdom: “We call upon the UK to implement fully the NI Protocol, which avoids a hard border on the island of Ireland, preserves the integrity of the EU Internal Market, and protects the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts.”
“We agree that renegotiating the Protocol is not an option.”
A former adviser to Margaret Thatcher reacted angrily to the Congressman’s tweet, which implied that Britain had no choice in how it handled its domestic affairs.
Nile Gardner reacted angrily to the threat, saying: “Mind your own business.”
“A good idea to stop parroting the false propaganda of the European Commission as well.”
“Show some respect as a Member of the United States Congress for America’s closest friend and ally the United Kingdom, and the democratic will of the British people.”
Also reacting to this tweet was former DUP leader Edwin Poots, who said: “Why do you want to destroy the Peace Process, why do you want goods in Northern Ireland the most expensive on these islands?”
