London, after the announcement in Westminster of the British Foreign Minister Liz Truss, made official what has been talked about for days: the claim of the Johnson government to the EU on the Brexit Protocol of Northern Ireland. It consists of the promise to control goods and businesses from Great Britain going to Northern Ireland. This conflict between these two countries started in the Sixties: “Unionists” and “Nationalists” clashed in a low-intensity war with the participation of state actors (United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland) and non-state, including republican paramilitary militias.
We can compare this situation to that of Ukraine: some territories wanted to be annexed to Russia who took advantage of the situation to start a war that continues. These movements are very common in all the territories especially European and persist over time.
Will England come to its senses or will another battle begin?
