Therefore, the UK and the EU have agreed that whatever happens as a result of Brexit, there should be no new physical controls or new infrastructure at the border. In July 2019, Theresa May resigned and Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, with Boris Johnson saying he wanted to replace the Irish backstop as part of the withdrawal deal.  On 19 August, in a letter to the President of the European Council, the Prime Minister declared that the agreement was „undemocratic and incompatible with the sovereignty of the United Kingdom“.  He stressed that this was „not compatible with the UK`s desired end goal“ for its relations with the EU. Its third reason for the unsurability of the backstop is that it „weakens“ the Good Friday Agreement and the peace process in Northern Ireland. Tusk said opponents of the deal, without „realistic alternatives,“ supported the re-establishment of a hard border on the island of Ireland. That`s the reality, „even if they don`t admit it,“ he added. „The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland, unless an alternative is found,“ Tusk tweeted.  The Irish Government considered that „the real objective of the backstop was to maintain the status quo by guaranteeing freedom of movement and not a hard border on the island of Ireland; which is of paramount importance to the GFA. The reality is that Brexit is a threat to the GFA.  The Irish backstop (formally the Northern Ireland Protocol) is an annex to a draft Brexit withdrawal agreement drawn up by the May Government and the European Commission in December 2017 and completed in November 2018, which aimed to avoid an apparent border (with customs controls) between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit. Kit Malthouse was awarded as the organizer of an agreement between the Conservative Party`s limited factions on Brexit on 29 January 2019.
 The proposal consisted of two parts. Plan A was the re-opening of the withdrawal agreement with the EU and the renegotiation of the backstop. Britain`s transition period would also be extended, giving more time to agree on future relations. Plan B looked like a managed „no deal.“
