  • Brexit: No chance of US trade deal if Irish accord hit - Pelosi

    A US-UK trade deal will not get through Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives has said.

    Democrat Nancy Pelosi, whose party controls the House, said the UK's exit from the EU could not be allowed to endanger the Irish peace deal.

    Her comments came after the US national security adviser said the UK would be "first in line" for a trade deal.

    John Bolton spoke after meeting Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London.

    The reimposition of frontier controls between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland if the UK leaves the EU without mutual agreement on 31 October - a so-called "hard Brexit" - is seen as a threat to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which ended decades of bloodshed in Northern Ireland.

    "Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement, including the seamless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland," Ms Pelosi said in a statement on Wednesday.

    Why are we still talking about Brexit? Didn't the people democratically vote for it?
