    The United Kingdom’s long and painful exit from the European Union might have just got a whole lot more complicated. The EU has announced it is launching legal action against it over plans to breach parts of the Brexit agreement. It says a bill now before the British Parliament would violate international law when it comes to trade rules in Northern Ireland. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted it breaks the rules, but says it is necessary to protect jobs and the “integrity” of the UK’s internal market. This was European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen a short time ago. –
