Will Prime Minister Johnson sacrifice Northern Ireland for a trade deal?

Will The Prime Minister be prepared for divergence of parts of the UK for the greater good and will he truly in his deepest, most honest democratic heart respect the will of the people by not giving a flying flamingo about our Irish brethren

    The problem for the UK is that the Good Friday Agreement is an international agreement recognised by the UN. If the UK breaks its commitments under that agreement then it poses four problems.

    1. Any country the UK wishes to do a trade deal with will suddenly see that the UK is quite willing to renege on international agreements. You can expect lots of additional negotiations and clauses put into those deals, taking longer to secure them.

    2. Although Trump has said there is no problem with a US trade deal, Congress will block it. The US was instrumental in the GFA and it won't reward the UK for breaking it.

    3. The EU will not be happy. And as major trading partners with an economy more than 5 times the UK's it will impose heavy tariffs.

    4. Ireland will lobby other UN countries to follow the US in delaying trade deals for breaking that agreement.

    Unification of Ireland would solve a lot of problems. Thing is, would the Republic even WANT N.I.? They are rather a financial let-down, aren't they?

    "our Irish brethren"

    XD

    The Irish are racially different from the British, silly man. They are basically a less pretty version of the British. Their composition, when inflicted on the British demographic, threatens capacity for maximum societal protection (e.g terrorist tendencies, lingering resentment) and compromisies the ability to produce good-looking people at high concentration. The demographic also has a Catholicism infestation.

    Honestly, people on here would be lost without me.

    Source(s): Highly incisive, very aware and very intensely strong-minded and pragmatic logician and tactician, very high-grade threat detector, nurturer of life-saving mental enhancement and developer of superior methods of societal organisation. Vehement advocate of human advancement, invulnerability and continuity / realisation of desirable and/or protective human, societal and global attributes (will viciously oppose any person or entity threatening these, without exception).

    In two shakes of an Irish lambs tail now the DUP have lost the power balance. He's focused on winning the next election so he can remain PM in the same way Corbyn is intent avoiding one to hang onto his leadership of Labour.
