Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm no specialist of the Good Friday Agreement (I'm sure Frank can help), but it looks to me like it is creating quite a number of specific regulations, laws, etc... for Northern Ireland that are quite different from the rest of the UK. Yet no British PM, to my knowledge, has claimed they "could never accept" such disparities.

To be fair, I'm not expecting consistency from the Brexiters either.

There are divergences between N. Ireland and GB on abortion rights, same sex marriage, agricultural regulations and on "devolved matters" within the remit of the Stormont regime, if there is one. This concern about divergence is entirely related to the Tory's dependency on the DUP, and will pass very quickly when than dependency ends.
