FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “”Donnez-moi un break”: Boris Johnson’s French submarine spat reaction deflects from US-UK trade deal” – below is their description.

In The World This Week, panelists note the timing of #BorisJohnson’s jibe at the French over that scuttled submarine deal: it happened just after a White House visit where the UK prime minister was rebuffed in his efforts to fast track a trade deal with Washington.

The Daily Beast’s Noor Ibrahim picks up on the irony of Johnson’s environment secretary claiming that #JoeBiden must “only read the headlines” when it comes to frictions over the Northern Ireland protocol.

  • 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.
