Sunak grapples with NI protocol puzzle but the stakes are different to 2019


British politics is seemingly beyond the point of “peak ERG”, said Tim Bale, a Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London. He said: “They’re by no means a completely spent force but they are a reduced one. No surrender on the Northern Ireland issue would be nice, but there are relatively few Brexit ultras who regard it as existential in the way that they saw both the withdrawal and the trade and cooperation agreements as existential.” The Guardian

Queen Mary University of London research led by Professor Bale was also referenced in an article in the Times on political views of the SNP and Labour Party.
