Steve Baker is delighted with the new post-Brexit agreement.
Which he says works for Ireland, the EU, and the unionists.
He explains that shipping to Northern Ireland will be similar to shipping to the Island of Wight.
About the new post-Brexit agreement, Northern Ireland Minister Steve Baker declares that he is “delighted, hand-on-heart thrilled to accept the whole thing.”
“I am incredibly proud of this achievement,” he adds, which he says works “for Ireland, for the EU, for the Eurosceptics and for the unionists”.
Yet, he adds that they can’t be rushed, “just as the DUP can’t be rushed,” despite his claim that he told this to the European Research Group (ERG).
“Imagine you’re sending something to the Isle of Wight, which involves a ferry… just as there would be some commercial information being shared with the ferry operator, the same will happen to Northern Ireland,” he says, explaining there will be a system that will make sure this “normal commercial information” is shared with the EU.
According to Baker, there won’t be any more steps for internet retailers.
“From the point of view of someone who sends a parcel, that will just go without any process,” he adds.
According to Baker, shipping to Northern Ireland will be similar to shipping to the Island of Wight.
“This restores the place of NI in the union. It’s great news.”
