EU is weak! Bloc branded 'Pile of rubble' after Sefcovic breakthrough hint to Truss

UK-EU discussions over the Protocol this week prompted a senior diplomat to tell RTE there is “scope for [Liz Truss, who took over the Brexit brief following Lord Frost’s resignation at the end of last year] to claim great victory”. They added: “The [EU] Commission has done all sorts of things they said last year couldn’t be done. If the British internally decide they want to bring this to an end… I think there is the potential to make speedy progress.” readers shared their hopes that negotiations over the Protocol could finally be coming close to an endpoint – and in the favour of Brexiteers.

According to Topp Gunn, the EU is a “pile of rubbish”, and the ball is in Britain’s court to end talks on its own terms.

Citizen Smithie added: “The EU are desperately trying to show the 27 that there’s a point to membership.

“The more UK gets for free, the less membership looks worth the billions of pounds a year it was costing us.”

Britain’s position was helped, some readers suggested, by the EU’s current economic troubles.

“Their exports to the UK are plummeting.”

WildPhilly also expressed their concern that, while Lord Frost “stood his ground” against the European Court of Justice (ECJ) continuing to check whether UK trade is taking place in according with EU law, Ms Truss is more likely to “cave”.

They wrote: “Lord Frost wouldn’t allow it, but it’s just a matter of time before Ms Truss [a former backer of ‘Remain’] does.”

For many Brexiteers, any deal which involves the continued involvement of the ECJ would be unacceptable.

According to Dingledell: “Anything that still has the ECJ close by will be a traitorous sellout.”

Talks on the post-Brexit position of Northern Ireland are ongoing.
