Another person added: “Would we allow the EU to tell us what we could send from London to Manchester?
“Sort it Johnson!
“Faith in you is falling rapidly!”
Someone else commented: “Either the EU have to move on this or we will have no other choice than to rip up the agreement with the EU.”

“All their time is spent on the UK.
“It’s getting an obsession with them!”

Another added: “It’s obvious that the protocol doesn’t work, and our patience is running out.
“If the EU doesn’t bend the knee, we will leave on WTO.”

The Commission agreed to postpone the bureaucratic requirements until the end of September.
