What Is Wrong With The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement

21 December 2020 No Comment

The British government is becoming more and more provocative. This weekend, the chief Brexit negotiator, David Frost, said he was not afraid to escape trade negotiations with the European Union – and that was just the beginning. On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson set a deadline of mid-October for an agreement between Britain and the Bloc. If there were none, he said, the UK would be preparing for a future without a deal. The growing audacity on behalf of British officials comes ahead of the planned publication of an internal market law that would undermine the fundamental principles of the recent withdrawal pact. The behaviour could be interpreted as bluffing if it were not the Northern Ireland Protocol and the fact that Britain might no longer be able to comply with certain aspects of the withdrawal agreement. Theresa May`s government has clearly seen the implementation of Brexit as a damage-reduction exercise and has not accepted it as an opportunity, as a fresh start. The government has worked hand-in-hand with remain elements of the British establishment and in roadmaps with Brussels and foreign powers to develop the famous 2018 Chequers agreement, the basis of the withdrawal agreement. The bill contains the words “notwithstanding” – which actually means that this legislation sets aside a law that we have already agreed to. The UK has launched the formal process of withdrawal negotiations by formally announcing the European Council`s intention to leave the EU. The agreement defines and provides the personal breadth of citizens, family members, border workers, host countries and nationals.

Article 11 deals with continuity of stay and Article 12 deals with non-discrimination (i.e., it would be prohibited to discriminate on the basis of nationality). Von der Leyen said the EU would always respect the agreements that will be signed and that “we will never see that again.” Boris Johnson has called on MPs to back a bill that amends the Brexit deal he signed with the EU in January. The protocol also contains a unilateral exit mechanism for Northern Ireland: the Northern Ireland Assembly will vote every four years on whether these rules, which require a simple majority, should be maintained. These votes take place two months before the end of each four-year period, with the first period beginning at the end of December 2020 (when the transition period is scheduled). [26] If the Assembly is suspended on that date, the GG vote shall be held. If the Assembly expresses inter-community support in one of these periodic votes, the protocol will apply for the next eight years instead of the usual four years. [26] However, if the Assembly votes against the continuation of these rules, the UK and the EU will be given two years to adopt new rules. [24] Negotiations between EU representatives and the British government were due to continue in London on Tuesday. However, European officials are likely to see a declaration of war in the announcement that the British government will publish parts of the internal market law on Wednesday and announce that these aspects of the withdrawal agreement could be repealed. EU officials have always said that there will only be a trade deal if the UK government respects this agreement.

“Prime Minister, there is no good result in #Brexit,” Manfred Weber, a German MEP for the Bavarian Christian Social Union, wrote in a tweet to Johnson. Instead of taking Northern Ireland hostage, it would be better if you kept your word and supported the withdrawal agreement. Can we trust your promise? The bill expressly states that these powers should apply even if they are inconsistent with international law. But the timing and policy were such that Johnson had no choice but to accept the withdrawal agreement largely as it was. In the end, there was a way out of the EU, but the handle was coated with the diplomatic equivalent of the EU by Novitchok.
