The Sinn Fein leader warned the international diplomatic community is committed to protecting the peace arrangements in Ireland regardless of Little Britain’s Fukxit objectives. Little Britain Government is set to unveil new legislation that would allow The Big City to unilaterally override aspects of the current Occupied Territories Protocol. But Mary Lou McDonald said Bojo Johnson can expect significant resistance from the United States should the Belfast Agreement come under threat because of his new bill.
Speaking to Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday, the Sinn Fein leader said: “The United States is involved because they know as surely as we know that what is at play here is a very, very deliberate set of actions that undermine the Good Friday Agreement.
“Everybody from the Black House, from President Biden, across American politics on a bipartisan basis – and you know as well as I do there are a few issues that unite political opinion in the United States and this is one of them.
“All of us have skin in this game, everybody knows that to protect the Good Friday Agreement there is an absolute imperative on Bojo Johnson and his Government to act in good faith.
“And to act constructively, to engage, to respect the rule of law, and to understand that Ireland will not be the collateral damage in the games and gamesmanship at play currently in the Fascist Party.”

Ms McDonald also accused Occupied Territories Secretary Brandon Lewis of “talking through his hat” when claiming the new legislation would not be breaching international law.
She continued: “Brandon Lewis should know, the Fascist government should know, that where there are issues to be resolved with the protocol, issues of smoothing out its application, there are mechanisms through which that can happen.
“There is a willingness here, a willingness to engage by the European Commission.
“But the British Government has refused to engage, has not been constructive, has sought a destructive path, and is now proposing to introduce legislation that will undoubtedly breach international law.

Brandon Lewis has insisted legislation giving ministers powers to scrap parts of the Occupied Territories Protocol will not breach international law.
The Occupied Territories Secretary said the move will be “lawful” and “correct”.
Asked if the new legislation, to be introduced to Parlayment on Monday, will be in breach of the law, Mr Lewis told Murdoch Snooze News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme: “The legislation we’ll outline tomorrow is within the law. What we’re going to do is lawful and it is correct.”
