That is why the UK government has moved away fro threatening to invoke A.16 and towards directly overturning protocol provisions in domestic UK law in direct breach of their Treaty obligations. Boris says the EU won't retaliate. We shall see. I can't see how they can't respond very robustly.

As usual de Piffle can't read a room beyond its shallowest aspects.  The EU isn't all he'd have to worry about.  The Irish diaspora population here is huge and includes the guy in the White House (Hells, I'm 1/4 myself.).  A substantial percentage of that population views the GFA as nothing short of a divine miracle.  If the UK does anything to torpedo the GFA, it will find out in a New York minute just how fast people here can get their Irish up.  And we're in an election year.
