If there are any terms of the Withdrawal Agreement that people in Northern Ireland don’t like that they would lapse automatically after four years.

Truthfullness 1 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


It won’t automatically lapse. Full Fact says:

“The Northern Ireland protocol does include a “consent and exit mechanism”—giving Northern Ireland a chance to agree or disagree with the continuation of the protocol’s trade provisions. The UK will get to decide exactly how this consent is obtained. The UK’s proposals state that this will be via a vote in the Northern Ireland Assembly.”

Do you agree this deserves 1 / 5 for truthfullness?
