EU sues UK over move to rewrite post-Brexit trade rules

“The European Union sued Britain on Wednesday over its move to rewrite the trade rules agreed to when the country left the EU two years ago, ratcheting up tensions between the major economic partners. Earlier this week, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government proposed legislation that would remove customs checks on some goods entering [occupied] Ireland from … the U.K. … The EU’s decision to pursue legal action raises the possibility that either or both sides could impose punishing tariffs on the other.” (06/15/22)
