A strange silence has descended over one of the main post-Brexit points of contention between the EU and the UK: the Northern Ireland protocol. It has been more than a month since the so-called Windsor framework, tweaking the protocol, was announced to much hoopla. Sighs of relief all around, crisis averted for the UK and the EU but most importantly for Rishi Sunak and his up till then fractious Tory party. Yet, very little has been made since then of the fact that the framework is a dead letter that can only come to life by the rather dubious restoration of power-sharing in Stormont, Northern Ireland’s devolved parliament.
