That is a claim that you cannot prove.
Right now the UK has been unable to disprove this for over 3 years by now.Please quote the clause(s) of the GFA that you think the current UK government is no longer committed to.
The central mechanism of the GFA is to open up NI to both the ROI and to Britain so NI citizens can freely choose themselves whether to orient towards the ROI or towards Britain, and that was only possible by both the UK and the ROI being EU members within the same regulatory environment, eliminating the need for a hard border between NI and the ROI.
The policy of the current UK government is now to cut off one of the legs of the GFA by destroying the ROI part of the GFA with Brexit and with the ensuing divergence which automatically re-creates the need for a controlled border, so the only NI citizens not directly affected are just the ones oriented towards Britain. ROI-oriented citizens of NI are shafted by the unilateral Brexit policies pushed by Westminster and lose most of their freedoms afforded to them by the GFA, effectively making them second-class citizens again and re-creating the same source of conflict that had powered the civil war back before the GFA.
And neither the current UK government nor its backers in the Tory party care what will happen to NI in this situation they themselves are pushing for.
A post that dosnt actully say how we violated the GFA, but let me remind you that free movement between Irish citizens not only across the Irish frontier but direct to UK mainland will continue under a Common Travel Area (CTA) in which they retain all current rights,so who is actully cut off?
