At least this new deal allows some space for the UK to break away from the EU if it so desires. A lot of what is written there is vague, so it remains to be seen what will happen. However, this deal is definitely much better for Leavers than scraping Brexit altogether, which was also an option.
Just a dressed up Teresa May deal
Awful deal! With the ‘transition periods’ untill 2022 for free trade, we still cannot fish in our waters effectively, control our own borders…far from the Brexit that the leavers voted for.
My friend…The problem is, referendum question did not ask the voters about all these things. It only asked: Leave the EU. Yes or no? So how can you tell what the leavers voted for?
If the deal doesn’t include…U.K fishing rights, free trade outside the Customs union, the U.K having their own Judicial system without Brussels interference, controlled borders… then it is not Brexit. I will await with great interest what the bottom line is? The problem is getting the backing of Parliament…which is unlikely.
