Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Brexit: EU proposes to slash most checks on goods from GB to NI” – below is their description.

They’ve been dubbed the “sausage wars”, the tension between the UK and EU over trade rules in Northern Ireland.

Today, the protocol is under fire yet again. In an overture to the UK, the EU suggested cuts to the number of checks on the border to ease the path of goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

But the UK says it no longer wants the European Court of Justice to be the final arbiter of disputes over trade rules, saying an independent body should be set up.

Warning: There is some flash photography in this report.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
