Without a prior agreement with the EU, Prime Minister Boris Johnson`s government has said it is extending a post-Brexit grace period and postponing controls on agribusiness entering Northern Ireland from the UK, undermining a key pillar of the divorce pact. Under that agreement, the British and Irish Governments undertook to hold referendums in Northern Ireland and the Republic on 22 May 1998 respectively. The referendum in Northern Ireland was aimed at approving the agreement reached during the multi-party negotiations. The referendum in the Republic of Ireland was aimed at approving the BRITANNICO-Irish Agreement and facilitating the amendment of the Constitution of Ireland in accordance with the Agreement. The DUP has therefore made its own difficulties. If he had played his cards differently, he could celebrate today how he negotiated to give Northern Ireland the best of both worlds – the best of the EU and the best of the UK. Instead, she sees herself overplayed and claims imaginary violations of an agreement she tried to stifle when she was born in 1998. In due course, we will see what his constituents think. “Please do not underestimate the strength of feelings on this issue throughout the Unionist family. accordingly, I have been ordered to inform you that loyalist groups are hereby withdrawing their support for the Belfast Agreement until our rights under the agreement are restored and the protocol is amended to ensure unhindered access to goods, services and citizens throughout the United Kingdom. If you or the EU are unwilling to comply with the entire agreement, you are responsible for the permanent destruction of the agreement. As part of the agreement, the British Parliament repealed the Government of Ireland Act 1920 (which had established Northern Ireland, divided Ireland and claimed a territorial claim over all of Ireland) and the people of the Republic of Ireland amended Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland, which affirmed a territorial claim to Northern Ireland.
Under an agreement known as the Northern Ireland Protocol, goods do not need to be checked along the Irish border when new relations between the UK and the EU begin on 1 January. How does it work? Still valid: “If the UK authorities breach – or threaten to breach – the Withdrawal Agreement through UK Internal Market Law. or otherwise, the European Parliament will under no circumstances ratify an agreement between the EU and the UK” 11.9. “If you or the EU are not willing to abide by the entire (Good Friday) agreement, then you will be responsible for the permanent destruction of the agreement,” paramilitary adviser Johnson said in a letter. In addition to the number of signatories,[Note 1] Stefan Wolff identifies the following similarities and differences between the issues covered by the two agreements: The UK is required by law to ensure that goods entering Northern Ireland from the UK are inspected, according to Jess Sargeant of the Institute for Government think tank. A joint committee made up of representatives from the UK and EU governments will determine which goods are likely to remain in the EU. He said the protocol violated the guarantees of the Good Friday Agreement, also known as the Belfast Agreement, to protect the status of both communities. Loyalist resentment was comparable to that of 1985, when Unionists and Loyalists held mass rallies against the Anglo-Irish agreement, Campbell said.
The main issues left out by Sunningdale and addressed in the Belfast Agreement are the principle of self-determination, the recognition of both national identities, British-Irish intergovernmental cooperation and legal procedures to make power-sharing compulsory, such as inter-community voting and the D`Hondt system for appointing ministers to the executive.   Former IRA member and journalist Tommy McKearney says the main difference is the British government`s intention to negotiate a comprehensive deal involving the IRA and the most intransigent trade unionists.  With respect to the right to self-determination, two limitations are noted by legal writer Austen Morgan. Firstly, the transfer of territory from one State to another must be done through international agreements between the British and Irish Governments. Secondly, the people of Northern Ireland can no longer achieve a united Ireland alone; they need not only the Irish Government, but also the people of their Irish neighbour to support unity. Morgan also pointed out that, unlike the Ireland Act 1949 and the Northern Ireland Constitution Act 1973, which were drafted under Sunningdale, the 1998 Agreement and the resulting UK legislation expressly provided for the possibility of a united Ireland.  The agreement establishes a framework for the establishment and number of organizations in three “policy areas.” .
