Former British Prime Ministers Labor Tony Blair and Conservative John Major have called on MPs to reject what they call “shameful” Boris Johnson’s bill that seeks to modify the ‘Brexit’ agreement. The two former leaders have written a joint article in the pages of the ‘Sunday Times’ in which they consider that Johnson’s attitude is “irresponsible”, “wrong” and “dangerous”.

He Boris Johnson Government has presented in Parliament the so-called Internal Market Bill, which, if approved, would modify some of the commitments acquired in the withdrawal agreement reached with the European Union on January 31, 2019 and could leave the mechanism designed to avoid erecting a physical border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The bill will be debated this Monday in the House of Commons. From the pages of the ‘Sunday Times’, Blair and Major, who worked to reach the peace agreement of Good Friday (1998) in Northern Ireland, the attitude of the Government “shames” the United Kingdom.

The two former leaders add that the executive’s plans may jeopardize the Good Friday deal, damage the UK’s credibility in future trade deals and may lead to damaging retaliatory measures by the EU.
