Wires and social media reporting comments from the judgement from Northern Ireland's High Court on the Judicial Review into the legality of the protocol. The review was brought 'on behalf of unionists everywhere' by a group of unionist politicians including former DUP leader Arlene Foster, former UUP leader Steve Aiken, TUV leader Jim Allister, Belfast Agreement architect Lord Trimble, former Brexit Party MEP Ben Habib and Baroness Hoey.

  • Wires reporting Court says: "British parliamentary sovereignty is vital in the question of the Northern Ireland protocol....The EU Withdrawal Act overrides the 1800 Act of Union...Judicial review rejected on these grounds.'
  • As such, the High Court of Northern Ireland has ruled that the Withdrawal Act and its components (including the Northern Ireland protocol) is NOT unconstitutional.
  • Unionist activist Jamie Bryson tweets "One day before the 1st July the High Court (in a judgement that will of course be appealed to the UKSC) finds that the Protocol repeals the Act of Union. It's hard to think of a more flammable liquid to pour on the fire of Unionist/Loyalist anger."
  • Sam McBride at the Belfast News Letter tweets: "The NI Protocol conflicts with the 1800 Act of Union, but part of the Act of Union was impliedly repealed by Parliament's consent to the protocol, the High Court has ruled. Unionist leaders have lost that legal argument - but it's politically significant."
