Is there such a thing as an amicable divorce these days? It would seem not, as the EU like a scorned lover continues to stalk the UK, lurking in the shadows, ready and waiting to retaliate and rebuke Britain’s new bachelor lifestyle and anything that they believe infringes upon their divorce settlement. There had been promises of friendship, but it never works out that way. And the once extended olive branch is now being used to slap Britain into legal proceedings, as the European Commission prepares to take action against the British government over what they believe is a flagrant disregard for the Brexit agreement, after the UK decided to unilaterally extend the grace period allowing businesses in Northern Ireland more time to adapt to post-Brexit rules. European commission vice-president, Marcos Sefcovic, believes the actions of the UK have breached the terms of agreement laid out in the Brexit deal and has accused them of breaking international law. As the Bloc agrees on the need for action against Britain, Sputnik spoke with political commentator, Pete Durnell to find out what this could mean for the relationship between the EU and the UK.
