Rejection Of Agreement About Northern Ireland
www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2019/04/moderates-northern-ireland-good-friday-agreement/587764/. On the basis of the Hansard Protocol of parliamentary debates, we have listed the objections raised by MEPs to May`s Brexit deal. While the main objection was trade, the backstop received the second highest number of objections. What about goods imported from Northern Ireland from countries with which the EU has a free trade agreement (for example. B Canada), but not the United Kingdom? If the goods are destined for the EU market (either directly or as an intermediate benefit), it is likely that the European Union`s EUROPE will apply to that country. If the goods are destined for the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland or Great Britain), the highest overall UK tariff should apply. First, it is not at all clear which tariffs will actually be applied at the border or how to deal with them. This means that the destination of the product is important not only for goods from Great Britain moving to Northern Ireland, but also for products from third countries arriving in Northern Ireland and that appropriate risk and destination procedures would also apply to these types of products. 10 Financial Times, October 30, 2018.

Similarly, the refusal of the EU`s permanent presence in Northern Ireland and the emphasis on the territorial integrity of the United Kingdom within the framework of the UK`s exclusive control over the border with the Irish Sea (points 53 and 54) ignores the EU`s concerns about its ability to oversee procedures at its external border. The agreement established the Anglo-Irish IGC, made up of officials from the British and Irish governments. The body focused on political, legal and security issues in Northern Ireland, as well as the `promotion of cross-border cooperation`. It had only an advisory function – it was not empowered to make decisions or change the law.  The conference would have only the power to put forward proposals “to the extent that these issues are not the responsibility of a decentralised administration in Northern Ireland.” This provision should encourage trade unionists (who, through the conference, opposed the Irish government`s participation in Northern Ireland) in a deceded power-sharing government. Maryfield`s secretariat was the permanent secretariat of the conference, which included officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic, headquartered in the suburb of Maryfield in Belfast. The presence of civil servants of the Republic has mainly outraged trade unionists. [Citation required] Maryfield`s offices were closed in December 1998, after the Anglo-Irish Intergovernmental Conference succeeded the Anglo-Irish Intergovernmental Conference.  The agreement was widely rejected by trade unionists because it first gave the Republic of Ireland a role in the governance of Northern Ireland and because it had been excluded from the negotiations of the agreement.
The Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) led the campaign against the agreement, including mass rallies, strikes, civil disobedience and the mass resignation of all Unionist MPs in the British House of Commons. The DUP and UUP together gathered 400,000 signatures in a petition against the agreement. Northern Ireland Minister Tom King was attacked by Protestants in Belfast on 20 November.  On 23 November 1985, a mass rally against the agreement was held in front of Belfast City Hall, in which Irish historian Jonathan Bardon said: “Nothing like it has been since 1912.”  Estimates of the number of people vary: the Irish Times reported that 35,000 people were present;  The News of the World, the Sunday Times and the Sunday Express claimed 100,000;  Arthur Aughey, a professor of politics at the University of Ulster, said that more than 200,000 people were present;  and the o
