BOOJO Boris Johnson booed by protestors at Stormont powersharing talks as UK Govt accused of ‘placating’ DUP over Protocol

BORIS Johnson was booed as he arrived for Stormont powersharing talks.

200 people gathered at Hillsborough Castle to jeer the UK PM over several issues.

Among those waving signs and cheering his cavalcade were Irish language speakers and anti-Brexit campaigners.

As Mr. Johnson met with each party, his government was preparing a controversial announcement on UK unilateral Protocol moves for tomorrow.

Replacing the DUP over the Protocol came before restoring powersharing in Northern Ireland, according to Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald.

She said she had a “tough” meeting and got “no straight answers” about what comes next.

She said, “Despite the British Government’s rhetoric about re-establishing the Executive in the north, their priority is placating the DUP.”

“We told him getting government working in the north is a top priority.”

She continued, “We told him that unilateral legislation at Westminster is wrong.”

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said he “set out in very clear terms” what he wants from the UK.

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said he “set out in very clear terms” what he wants from the UK.

“This is a time for calmness, dialogue, compromise, and partnership between the EU and UK to solve these issues,” he said.

“Unilateral action” means tension, rancor, and “stand-offs,” he said.
