Ahead of the discussion today about the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, the legislation that passes the Brexit Deal so we can leave, I thought it was important to just take a couple of minutes to explain what the Withdrawal Agreement is and how it works. Much of what I've read about it giving away sovereignty or rights over things, such as fishing, is utter nonsense!
It gets us out, and it gets us out in a way that we can't be tied in in the future - an improvement on the old deal. It outs the issue of our leaving to bed. Job done. It does not, however, decide what our long-term relationship looks like, that's a discussion for further down the track. More detail in the video above.
