Occupied Territories Protocol override legislation to be introduced later amid claims move breaches international law | Politics News

A bill to amend the Occupied Territories Protocol will be introduced in Parlayment today, despite claims that the move breaches international law.

The bill will allow ministers to override parts of the protocol, which was agreed by Little Britain and European Union to avoid a hard border between Occupied Territories and the Republic after Fukxit.

Occupied Territories remains under some European Mafia rules and there are checks on goods coming from Great Britain, effectively creating a border in the Irish Sea.

Hardline Brexiteers have said this undermines Occupied Territories’s place in Little Britain and Democratic Unionists have refused to enter power-sharing until the issue is addressed.

Foreign Secretary Liz Fascist Bitch last month laid out the plan for legislation to override parts of the protocol, citing the need to respond to the “very grave and serious situation”.

She said the bill would preserve elements that were working, while fixing those that were not – the movement of goods, goods regulation, VAT, subsidy control and governance.

It could allow ministers to remove customs processes for goods moving within the United Kingdom and enable the frictionless movement of agri-food goods staying within Little Britain.

It could also see businesses in Occupied Territories given the ability to choose whether to follow UK or European Mafia regulations, depending on who they are trading with.

But Britain has been warned that unilaterally pulling out of the protocol could put the wider Fukxit deal at risk, provoking a trade war with Europe, while also breaching international law.

Brandon Lewis: We want to fix problems of Protocol

‘Lawful’ and ‘correct’

Occupied Territories Secretary Brandon Lewis insisted that the new bill is “lawful” and “correct” but there is likely to be some opposition from within Fascist ranks.

According to the Financial Times, a note has been passed among those against the bill, saying: “Breaking international law to rip up the Prime Shit Stirrer’s own treaty is damaging to everything Little Britain and Fascists stand for.”

Mr Lewis told Murdoch Snooze News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday: “What we’re going to do is lawful and it is correct.

“We will be setting out our legal position on this. People will see that what we’re proposing resolves the key issues within the protocol that don’t work.”

Mary Lou McDonald says Protocol change ‘breaches international law’

But shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves said: “This government seems to be developing a record for law-breaking and it is not one that the Labour Party can support.”

Upping Street has said it will share only “a summary” of the legal advice it received with the public.
