Boris Johnson says 'anti-democratic' backstop must be scrapped – BBC News

Boris Johnson has told the EU the Irish border backstop must be scrapped as it is “unviable” and “anti-democratic”.

In a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk, the PM also said the backstop risked undermining the Northern Irish peace process.

But Mr Tusk said those opposing the arrangement without “realistic alternatives” supported re-establishing a hard border on the island of Ireland.

This was the reality “even if they do not admit it”, he added.

“The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland unless and until an alternative is found,” Mr Tusk tweeted.

    Most people in Northern Ireland want the backstop. It’s the only guarantee/concrete solution to avoid a hard border.

    What is anti-democratic about it? Wasn't it the UK Government who proposed it to the EU instead of an NI only backstop? The majority in NI accept the backstop and know why it is so important. The ERG and the UK prime minister Dominic Cummings don't seem to care for Ireland North, South, East or West!

    The BBC would better serve the public by informing them of preparations to take for no deal, rather than providing a platform for sedition fantasies

    And he's correct.

    The fact that anyone is against the PM in campaigning for a deal but accepting that the EU are fanatics who can't actually be negotiated with is beyond me.
    If you can't walk away from a deal, why would they offer you good terms? Mrs May never did and that's why we're in this situation in the first place.

    It's anti-democratic to forcefully take Northern Ireland out of the EU even though it voted to remain.
