Good Friday agreement survives legal challenge today.
Quote:
Northern Ireland's High Court on Wednesday rejected a challenge by the region's largest pro-British parties to part of Britain's divorce deal with the European Union, saying the Northern Ireland Protocol was consistent with British and EU law.

The court said Britain's EU withdrawal agreement, which effectively left Northern Ireland in the bloc's trading orbit, overrode earlier precedents due to the sovereignty of the British parliament and its status as constitutional legislation.

Sure it was, just a taste of things to come: Amsterdam overtakes London as Europe's top share trading centre

London lost it's biggest advantage. The deregulation etc that is come down the line means the London will pick up the risky stuff no one else wants and the UK taxpayer will be on the hook if it goes pear shape.
That lasted long:
