BORIS Johnson won’t be pushed around by the EU, warns Attorney General Suella Braverman.
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, she said: “We will do whatever it takes to ensure that we get a good settlement for Northern Ireland and a good settlement for the Union.”
“I am really confident we are not going to let the EU push Northern Ireland around,” she added.
Ms Braverman is supporting the PM’s bid to tear up EU rules.
“The Prime Minister has made it really clear that we’re going to do everything that we can, whether that’s legislatively or indeed if it comes to it invoking Article 16 to ensure that there’s no barrier in the Irish Sea.
“It is about getting an equivalent interpretation of the rules and we can’t have one party taking disproportionately excessive interpretation or application of rules and one party being forced to accept that,” she added.
