Chairman's response to the Northern Ireland Office | Ian Paisley MP


Recently, Centre for the Union wrote to the Minister of State for Northern Ireland to urge him to take a stand against Northern Ireland being annexed into the customs territory of the EU. After all, this is not Brexit, and this is not compatible with the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

The Prime Minister is always welcome in Belfast and every effort must be made for him to understand just how serious a situation this part of the kingdom is in. But he requires laser-like focus to solve this problem.


He can’t leave a part of the U.K. annexed into a zone to protect the EU single market. That is not our job and he can’t leave part of the UK subordinate to EU legal jurisdiction I suspect he has some distance to travel before he can reach a deal.


He may now need to stand up to the EU and let them know he is taking singular action to maintain the kingdom and defend the union and all its people. My fear is nothing I have seen offers the basis to restore power-sharing.


The issue that His Majesty's Government still has failed to grasp is that it is NOT THE UK'S JOB to protect EUs single market. Nor is it right to attempt to use Northern Ireland as a buffer zone between the EU and the UK, after all, you can’t be half pregnant!


This letter is an attempt by the Minister to explain how you can be half pregnant and if this is the blueprint for a protocol agreement it is doomed to fail!

My Second Reply: REMEMBER the 7 TESTS! Never mind talking about mere 'trade agreements' while in America, Jeffery. The vital test concerning Article 6 of the Acts of Union is where your focus must remain - if you are going to be trusted in any shape or form by the PUL Electorate.

The Sovereignty issue, 'disapplied' by the Windsor Framework, MUST be fully addressed, or the word of LIBERAL DUP politicians will NEVER…

Save Britain site leaks EU's Real Opinion on the Windsor Framework: EU still controls Northern Ireland, UK.

EU chief privately admits to MEPs that Sunak’s Brexit deal fails to ‘take back control’

March 6, 2023 by Save Britain

According to a leaked recording, the EU’s top negotiator, Maros Sefcovic, does not believe Rishi Sunak’s Northern Ireland deal gives Britain full control. Despite what the British Prime Minister says, Mr Sefcovic told the European Parliament’s Brexit committee that the European Court still rules over Northern Ireland. He insisted that the Windsor Agreement would not give the UK complete sovereignty over Northern Ireland. This appears to be a repeat of Boris Johnson’s remarks, after the former Prime Minister stated that the deal…

My reply: Ian Paisley jnr's plea to the Minister of State for Northern Ireland, urging him to '...take a stand against Northern Ireland being annexed into the customs territory of the EU...', must necessarily fall on the deafest of Tory Government ears, given a serious fact that Mr Paisley, and other Unionist politicians seem to have too quickly forgotten.

The fact that Article 6…
