UK has already breached withdrawal agreement, EU lawyers say
Leaked legal opinion says bloc already has grounds to take ‘legal remedies’ that could lead to financial and trade sanctions

Britain has already breached the withdrawal agreement by tabling the internal market bill, prompting Brussels to plan legal action that could lead to financial and trade sanctions, according to a leaked EU legal opinion.

The European commission believes Boris Johnson’s government breached the terms of the treaty just by taking the first steps to pass a new law that would negate key parts of the agreement signed last year.

“Already by tabling the draft bill and pursuing the policy expressed therein, the UK government is in violation of the good faith obligation under the withdrawal agreement (article 5) because this bill jeopardises the attainment of the objectives of the agreement”, the commission lawyers write.

The commission has advised the 27 EU capitals that there are therefore grounds for the bloc to take “legal remedies” through the European court of Justice before the end of the transition period, leading to significant fines or potential trade sanctions.

I formally request that the EU stop freely conflating the entire United Kingdom with the current Conservative government. The Tories are no more Britain than Trump is America.

Tory rebellion widens over Boris Johnson's bill to override Brexit deal
Criticism grows of plan to break international law as EU calls for bill to be dropped

Downing Street is facing a showdown with Conservative backbench rebels as criticism over its plans to break international law with a new controversial bill that could override parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement grew louder on Sunday.

It is understood that opposition among the party is growing, with dozens of Tory MPs expected to support a key amendment to the internal market bill that would give parliament a crucial veto of any changes to the agreement.

MPs will have an opportunity to air their opposition during a second reading and debate of the bill on Monday, when it will also be put to a vote before passing to committee stage. A number of Tory MPs intend to abstain on Monday’s vote, with up to 30 expected to back the amendment tabled by Sir Bob Neill, chair of the justice select committee, next week.

Geoffrey Cox, Boris Johnson’s former attorney general, broke cover on Sunday evening to say he could not support the bill, describing the government’s plan as “unconscionable”.

The shadow Cabinet Office minister, Rachel Reeves, confirmed that Labour would also vote against the bill in its current form.

Neill, who will be abstaining on Monday, told the Guardian: “I’ve had some very positive support from fellow Conservative MPs, significantly from both people who supported Brexit, as well as remainers. I’m confident that support is growing.”

Brexit: internal market bill passes by 77 votes amid Tory party tension
30 Tory MPs abstain and two vote against controversial bill which will break international law

Conservative MPs fired a warning shot at Boris Johnson’s conduct of the Brexit process on Monday night, as former cabinet ministers and attorney generals withheld support for a controversial bill which will break international law.

One government source said the justice secretary, Robert Buckland, was “wobbly” and had asked for additional cabinet scrutiny of a controversial clause of the bill.

Official post-Brexit report warns of queues of 7,000 lorries in Kent
Exclusive: document seen by the Guardian says core IT system not due to be tested until November

The scale of disruption predicted to hit UK borders post-Brexit is revealed in confidential government documents warning of queues of 7,000 lorries in Kent, and two-day delays to cross into the EU.

A “reasonable worst-case scenario” report, drawn up by the Border and Protocol Delivery Group, forecasts that thousands of passengers could also be forced to wait an extra two hours for Eurostar trains.
Well who is really bothered; The British government?

You see you have not got a clue. You are so fucking thick you cannot understand anything. It is not about official numbers but what happens to them. A case is just that a case, someone who got tested. Big deal. How many end up in hospital? Or in IC. Really pathetic.
