    Apparently it's ok to do so, and that comes from a minister...

    "Matt Hancock 'comfortable' with government breaking (international) law"

    The UK is heading further towards 'pariah country' status!

    But what can we do about it apart from moving to a country that doesn’t break the law?

    No such place exists I'm afraid...

    But the issue is, do you agree with (any) government breaking the law?

    Given that they all lecture their populations otherwise, and often impose punitive punishments for any transgressions!

    Can you show us any country that hasn't broken international law?

    And why are you reticent to say whether or not you agree with any country breaking the law?

    I'm quite happy to say that I don't agree...

    So how about you?

    Yes or no!

    Don’t start with the diversion tactics. I didn’t start this U.K. pariah/knocking thread, you did. Why is it only the U.K. that you appear to be singling out?

    Is it too much to expect our MP's to respect an agreement and the law?

    Which decision?

    The 2016 referendum was not binding....following the referendum it was for MPs to debate and this country has representative democracy.

    Anyway how can anybody "respect" the decision of something that can't be delivered, IE a con?

    If the UK government break the law, the public should condemn it.

    People who live in this country and pay their taxes have a right to criticise govts.

    "If you pay, you have a say"

    Your narrative of "if you don't like it leave" is puerile and tedious.

    How is that a con?

    It was a problem created by cakeism.....Brexiteers had a choice, UK stays in CU and SM or a border in Irish Sea.

    There never were any other solutions, but Brexiteers couldn't take responsibility for their actions, which is what you are doing and blaming it on the EU.
