Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney, who played a key role in negotiations on the withdrawal agreement and the Northern Ireland protocol, said on Twitter that the reported step was “a very ill-advised path.” A source told the FT that the measure could “clearly and deliberately” undermine the Northern Ireland agreement signed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson last October to avoid a return to a hard border in the region. The move comes as Britain and the European Union resume talks on a trade deal, with Johnson saying on Sunday that if no deal is reached by October 15, both sides should “accept that and continue.” Part of the Internal Market Act, due to be published on Wednesday, is expected to “remove the legal force of parts of the withdrawal agreement” in areas such as state aid and Northern Ireland`s customs law, the newspaper reported, citing three people familiar with the plans. in an agreement that the government, this government, had freely concluded in October. The way the government has decided to tackle this problem is the internal market law. This is a new piece of legislation that has just been published and submitted to Parliament and, in Part 5 of this Act, you have provisions on how the government is trying to deal with the problems caused by Article 10 of the Irish Protocol.

The European Union`s internal market was largely born out of the political support of Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s. Conservative Commissioner Arthur Cockfield worked with Jacques Delors, then President of the Commission, to create an internal market until 1992. State aid rules are a fundamental part of the internal market. It prevents governments from choosing national winners and champions. As such, it is a legal cornerstone of the Thatcherite economy. The government has threatened to do one or the other on other occasions, but has decided not to do so, but this is at a later stage. The government`s chief jurist has resigned on this issue.
A cabinet member told the House of Commons that the government had deliberately tried to break the law. Legislation introduced by the government, which stipulates that the provisions take effect independently of the fact that they are illegal for other reasons. This week, a minister told the House of Commons that the government is deliberately considering breaking the law. But in addition to these general constitutional questions, what is the underlying legal question? What triggered this potential constitutional crisis? The problem is something like state aid and how it will be handled on the island of Ireland, after Brexit is fully implemented on 1 January 2021.
