Brexit: Michael Ellis claims Labor’s ‘relentless negativity’
The two discussed a number of issues, including Brexit and its impact on Northern Ireland. Under Johnson’s Brexit agreement, some controls are now taking place on trade between Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom.
This has made furious trade unionists demanding the ‘Northern Ireland Protocol’ scrapped.
However, senior Democrats, including President Joe Biden, have urged the government not to do anything that could undermine the peace process.
In a statement, Pelosi said: “With respect for the will of the British people and Brexit, I reiterated the strong bipartisan support that the Good Friday agreements continue to enjoy in the US Congress and our hope that the ongoing negotiations will yield a positive result recognizing this landmark agreement. .
“It was my honor to personally invite the Prime Minister to a two-part leadership meeting at the Capitol in the United States when he travels to the United States later this month.”

Lord Frost, Britain’s negotiator of the Brexit negotiations, has warned Brussels that Britain can abandon the protocol unless it shows more flexibility.
It was introduced to prevent a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, which could have undermined the 1998 peace agreement.

She said: “In our meeting, Prime Minister Johnson and I discussed common priorities, including combating the climate crisis and tackling the coronavirus pandemic.
