Johnson says plan to break Brexit treaty needed to counter EU’s ‘revolver’

"Should the UK authorities breach - or threaten to breach - the Withdrawal Agreement, through the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill in its current form or in any other way, the European Parliament will, under no circumstances, ratify any agreement between the EU and the UK", the leaders of the political groups of the EU Parliament along with the members of the UK Coordination Group (UKCG) said in a joint statement on Friday.

Despite the growing disquiet about the Bill, Mr Johnson's large Commons majority means he should win an expected vote of the Bill's principles during the second reading on Monday.

Labour wants MPs to reject the internal market bill, saying it would undermine the Brexit withdrawal agreement already agreed by the British parliament.

The Internal Market Bill aims to ensure Britain's four constituent nations can trade freely with one another after leaving the EU.

"Breaking worldwide law is a step that should never be taken lightly", Javid said in statement.

The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Keir Starmer, who was self isolating due to coronavirus, said he would oppose a bill that broke worldwide law.

Former Labor Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Conservative Prime Minister John Major cast aside party rivalries to accuse Johnson of "shaming the UK" with the bill.

Geoffrey Cox, who was the government's top legal officer when Johnson negotiated the Brexit withdrawal agreement less than a year ago, said reneging on the deal would be an "unconscionable" breach of global law.

Trump blames 'explosive' trees for California's record-breaking wildfires
The three Democratic leaders of California, Oregon and Washing blamed the states' dire conditions on climate change. Wade Crowfoot, the head of the California Natural Resources Agency, responded: "I wish science agreed with you".

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland had earlier said the controversial powers amounted to a "break the glass in emergency provision if we need it" and said he did not believe they would be used. "It's a protection, it's a safety net, it's an insurance policy and it's a very sensible measure".

He told them clauses in the Internal Market Bill are "necessary to stop a foreign power from breaking up our country" and insisted there are still hopes of a Canada-style trade deal.

Johnson said Scottish beef being sent to Northern Ireland could face a 90 per cent tariff, Welsh lamb shipped to Northern Ireland could have a 61 per cent tariff, while cream from England could face a 100 per cent tariff.

Johnson's Conservative government has acknowledged that the bill breaches the legally binding withdrawal treaty that Britain and the European Union have both ratified.

All of Britain's living former prime ministers have expressed concern about his plan as have many senior figures in his Conservative Party.

The European Union is set to throw the City of London an 18-month lifeline to continue clearing euro derivatives after Britain's unfettered access to the bloc ends in January, an EU draft document showed.

The EU has ramped up preparations for a no-deal Brexit, which would be chaotic for business, markets and almost $1 trillion (780.03 billion pounds) in annual trade.
