  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “Raab accuses EU of ‘lopsided approach’ to NI Brexit protocol” – below is their description.

    The foreign secretary Dominic Raab says there has been a “very lopsided approach” to the Northern Ireland Protocol from Brussels.

    Mr Raab says the EU is not sticking to what was agreed between the two sides and has called for “a bit of respect” from EU leaders as he claimed the bloc’s senior figures “serially” talk about Northern Ireland “as if it were somehow a different country from the UK”.

    The Tory MP also spoke to Trevor Phillips about the progress made at the G7 summit and England’s lockdown roadmap.

  • 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.
