Boris Johnson has warned Brussels that the UK government will press ahead with unilateral changes to parts of the Brexit agreement if it does not engage in “genuine dialog.”

In a piece for the Belfast Telegraph ahead of his crunch visit to Northern Ireland on Monday, the prime minister said “there will be a necessity to act” if the European Union refuses to reform the Northern Ireland protocol.
