Detail of the statement bit more nuanced than headlines. But the fundamental grievance is that EU law shouldn't apply at all in NI without consent. A very high bar, which wasn't explicitly part of their 7 tests. I sympathise with their concerns but...(1/3) https://t.co/4pqy6buAJa

Unsurprising and yet surprising: The ICC goes all in. It was created to ensure responsibility not just for underlings, but also at the top. And so this it‘s what it‘s going for. Hugely courageous, hugely significant. https://t.co/XKiGRq1N8C
