4pm Brexit latest: Britain could face EU sanctions over law breach as Boris Johnson defends Irish border move – LIVE


BORIS Johnson has hit back at the EU’s “extreme” interpretations of last year’s EU exit deal.

It follows criticism of the Internal Market Bill published yesterday, which sets out trade terms for the four UK nations after December 31 when the post-Brexit transition period ends.

The government has admitted the bill breaks international law by backtracking on parts of the current Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

And the European Commission has demanded an “extraordinary” meeting with the UK to discuss the changes.

But Boris Johnson insists there’s no way turning the UK into a “rogue state” by attempting to alter the withdrawal agreement.
