That’s dangerous, not least because this authoritarian assault is so comprehensive that once settled as law, it will prove very tricky to unpick. Like many leaders who seek to transcend the constraints of democracy, Mr. Johnson may not foresee a future where he isn’t the one calling the shots. But the miserable shadow his power grab will cast over Britain is likely to last far longer than the tenure of the would-be “world king” himself.

His place in the history books, however, is secured. He will forever be the libertine whose pursuit of personal freedom and “control” saw his countrymen robbed of theirs.

Brexit was rejected by the people of Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland protocol is popular with the people of NI. Industry likes it. Farmers like it. It did not change the constitution of NI without the people’s agreement: Brexit did that. It helps to minimise the disruption of NI’s constitutional status being changed against the will of the people. It does not make a sea “border”, it creates a free trade zone. This is common practice in many countries seeking to expand industry (China for example has done it).
