Postal Packets Regulations deepen Irish Sea border | Ian Paisley MP


The Government for some time now have been deceitful to the people of Northern Ireland, that the Windsor Framework and these regulations are for our own benefit in Northern Ireland, I would argue that the impact of these regulations is to deepen the reality of the border down the Irish Sea rather than to remove it.


The people of Northern Ireland feel betrayed by this Government, the Prime Minister even said on 27th February 2023 the Framework “removed any sense of Border in the Irish Sea”, we know that this clearly is not the case and these Regulations prove that.


On 7th November 2019, Boris Johnson when asked about customs forms and papers, replied “If somebody asks you to do that, tell them to ring up the Prime Minister and I will direct them to throw that form in the bin. There will be no forms, no checks, no barriers of any kind. You will have unfettered access.” Sadly, this is simply untrue.


The Government claimed they had removed the Irish Sea border, but this is not so. It is clear that in fact even those trading solely within the UK internal market must obtain ‘authorisation’ to trade less restrictively, but certainly not freely, via the ‘green lane’. In order to obtain this authorisation, a customs declaration must be completed, this is not free trade within an internal market of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


The scenes yesterday evening at the Second Delegated Legislation Committee on the Postal Packets (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2023, Members who did not agree with the Regulations and may have voted against them were removed by the Government, this is total and utter skullduggery from the Whips Office.

23/10/23 Can I ask CFU and all Unionist politicians what they and their Party are doing to redress the 'unjust imbalance' declared by the Courts earlier this year on the vital subject of 'Continual Nursing Care' for stroke-stricken elderly patients, and their having to pay for their own 'continual nursing care' as residents in Northern Ireland basic Nursing Homes (Almost £900.00 per WEEK), while similar patients/residents enjoy 'continual Nursing Care' in GB absolutely FREE! This utter unjust discrimination between GB patients and N.I. patients which is forcing elderly patients to pay the NIHSC all their savings, then sell their homes to continue payments is a total political disgrace, and needs addressing urgently. Thank you for your…

Good morning, Baroness Hoey, I listened to your comments on the Stephen Nolan BBC programme this morning, and one thing you said struck a cord with me, and it is quite an important point to be made: Unionists, Loyalists, and Protestants especially, are not heard much on the BBC or other News Media here in Northern Ireland, and one wonders why not! Is there, perhaps, a hidden reason for this situation?


Could it be a fact that certain BBC and News Outlets are instructed, covertly, NOT to feature salient PUL political and religious views - due to the fact that many of our sincerely held political/religious views are NOT in line with what is deemed to b…

J. Bryson Piece , June 30th: "Lord Justice McCloskey in Allister et al: NI belongs more to the EU… than the UK”.


My comment: Sure we told the DUP and Sammy Wilson this fact months ago on Centre for the Union site!


The UK State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK, no longer exists, if Article 6 of the Acts of Union are accepted as having been 'disapplied', and the bastard son of the N.I. Protocol i.e. the Windsor Framework are legally applied and surrendered to by Northern Ireland politicians.


The 'done deal' referred to by 'Risky' Sunak immediately splits Northern Ireland from Great Britain, and places us legally and immorally within the Sovereign…

The Death-Knell of Sovereign British Democracy in London!


RIP: It is with great sadness and some anger that we in Northern Ireland, UK mourn the passing of one we loved so much: British Sovereign Democracy.


Democracy was noted to have been failing for a number of years, as a number of toxic Parliamentary maladies were evidenced to be at work within Democracy's hidden organs. Poisoned Protocol, deteriorated it's health, and brought on a further debilitating destabilising condition called Windsor Framework.


Democracy, this great friend of all freedom-loving British citizens in Ulster was recently seen to go through phases of absence in daily political life, total lapses in negotiations with E.U. conditions; until just last evening, while enduring…
