The Poots Posts have helped the Northern Ireland Protocol to bed in, says Jim Allister

In his New Year’s message, TUV leader Jim Allister criticized the unionists for easing the Northern Ireland Protocol and named the Minister of Agriculture for his role in it.

Mr Poots, meanwhile, has spoken about the importance of controls on animal movements between the UK and Northern Ireland in order to maintain our high state of health and how he “worked with the European Commission to make changes to existing EU legislation to achieve this “. Movements possible ” (see link below).

Mr Allister said: “A year after the dissolution of the Union protocol was imposed, any honest assessment must conclude that dither and duplicity by key forces in the union movement helped to integrate.

Edwin Poots, the Minister of Agriculture. Says Jim Allister, “procrastination and duplicity from great forces in the union movement helped the protocol settle in. Hence the folly of the Poots posts.”

“As former First Minister Peter Robinson observed (see link below) you cannot proclaim against what you do every day. Hence the folly of the Poots posts. “

Mr. Allister added: “Likewise, it has helped the EU’s ill-gotten sovereignty over Northern Ireland to use the leverage we have at our disposal and instead talk nonsense about a new north-south oversight body.

“So what is needed first and foremost in 2022 is a new determination to break the protocol and undo the mistakes and inaction of 2021.”

The North Antrim MLA also said, “If ever the affirmation ‘out with the old and in with the new’ was relevant, it is now.

“Of course, 2022 offers this possibility on many fronts, not least in the parliamentary elections. The TÜV will give every voter the opportunity to decide with the broken promises, the constant change to Sinn Fein and the maintenance of the failed system at Stormont OUT and with the strong, reliable voice of the TÜV. Principle before power brings integrity back to politics.

“This is what TUV will offer in 2022 as it reminds voters that you get what you vote for!

“I wish everyone a happy, safe and healthy New Year.”
