EU negotiator peddling nationalist opinions

It is astonishing that Guy Verhofstadt, Euro Parliament Brexit negotiator, has called for Northern Ireland to be treated differently from the rest of the United Kingdom when the European Parliament had already decided, by an overwhelming majority, that there should be no special status for Northern Ireland in the Brexit Agreement.

Why does he peddle Irish nationalist opinion? He also says that it is the UK which must provide answers to the Irish border issue.

However, the UK has already presented its proposals. It is EU legislation which requires Ireland to have customs checks on or near its border.
