British Brexit Commissioner David Frost has called for a “different feeling” at the EU Commission, given the latest tensions between London and Brussels. Great Britain would like to see friendly cooperation at eye level in the future. “I think it was not the experience of the last few weeks, if we are honest,” Frost said on Tuesday at a meeting of the Europe Committee of the British House of Lords.

For example, Frost triggered an emergency clause in the Brexit agreement to monitor vaccine exports along the Irish-Northern Irish border, citing deliberations at the European Union Commission. Frost said doubts have also been expressed about the Astrogena vaccine developed by the University of Oxford by European politicians such as French President Emmanuel Macron. It is also unpleasant in London that many spices from British waters are no longer allowed to be imported into the European Union.
To resolve questions related to the so-called Northern Ireland Protocol, EU Commission Vice-Chairman Maros Sefcovic planned to travel to London on Thursday for talks with British Minister of State Michael Gov. Gov. was confident in the committee meeting on Tuesday. Relations between London and Brussels are similar to traveling on a plane, Gov said. The level of turbulence increases when it fluctuates. “But in the end you have to climb to a height and the crew asks you to take off your seat belt and enjoy a gin and tonic and some peanuts.”
