London wants Washington to be by his side

eDoes the post-Brexit controversy between London and Brussels have an Atlantic dimension? The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday that the British government had launched a “counter-attack” in the United States. A special envoy should be sent to the embassy in Washington to “oppose the EU’s attempts to bring the Biden administration against the United Kingdom.”

A British government official did not want to confirm any details to the FAZ, but described the “attempt to better explain the British position abroad” as “reasonable”. Efforts should also be stepped up in Berlin and Paris. At the moment, London’s arguments are “not going well internationally”.

The focus of this effort has been on the conflict over the special status of Northern Ireland after Brexit. US President Joe Biden joins the European Union during the exit mission. In London, this was due to his Irish roots and the close relations he had with the government in Dublin. Biden questioned the long-running free trade agreement with the United States in London during the election campaign at the time, when the British threatened to override the exit agreement with a national law last fall.

Conflict eased at the time, but recently Brussels announced legal action, with London unilaterally extending the offer period for certain goods checks between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. London has not violated this agreement.
