Protocol bureaucracy costing £506m | Gregory Campbell MP


Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office figures have confirmed that the Northern Ireland Protocol paperwork is costing taxpayers £16.8m per month or £506m from August 2020 until February 2023.


£500m would go a very long way in funding extra nurses, teachers, doctors and firefighters.

This works out at £16.8m per month. That’s the annual salary of 440 highly experienced nurses being spent every month on unnecessary paperwork brought about by a politically inspired Protocol.

This is taxpayers’ money and is being swallowed up in paperwork to enable the movement of goods from one part of the United Kingdom to another.

This is further confirmation as to why we need to have the Protocol replaced with arrangements that restore Northern Ireland’s place in the UK internal market.

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…

Gregory Campbell MP states: "This is further confirmation as to why we need to have the Protocol replaced with arrangements that restore Northern Ireland’s place in the UK internal market."

My reply: No, Mr Campbell! The PUL Electorate, while vaguely interested in 'trading agreements' and money-making 'arrangements', must have our Sovereign place within the State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK, restored to full citizenship capacity NOW. The Protocol cannot be merely tweaked, the Protocol must GO completely! Ulster's territorial integrity as an full integral part of the United Kingdom must be restored, NOW.

Too often we the Ulster people have watched members of the DUP wiggle and fudge their way along the political road - saying one…

The British Government must have the courage to tell the interfering Joe Biden to mind His own business when it comes to Northern Ireland an integral part of our Country how would Americans tolerate us demanding that they sell Alaska to Canada they would not tolerate it, the EU must be driven off these shore's the Conservative Party needs to get rid of Sunak and Hunt and reinstate Boris the only Man capable of sparing us a Labour administration led by Starmer Lammy and Rayner
