    Default BREAKING NEWS: A deal has been done

    Apparently...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Apparently so according to Sky News...

    Whether it gets through Parliament is a different question.

    The DUP has cast doubt on its sign off, saying they still cannot support it.

    Surely a no deal exit is far worse for DUP in terms of a hard border being imposed?

    Then it would have been "greatest deal on earth". I bet it is close to May's deal that will turn the UK into a vassal state.

    Could we call it the surrender deal? Then send BoJo to the tower.....

    Didn't the Benn act say that, if Bojo doesn't get a deal then he must ask for an extension. Well, he has his deal so, no extension letter needs to be written.

    Of course, if Westminster now votes this deal down, that's not Bojo's fault and he can, within the limits of the law, go to the end of October and leave on no deal

    Parliament has been played - they either vote for this 'new' deal, or they get a no deal crash out.

    The deal, mainly May's deal but with:

    https://ec.europa.eu/commission/site...rn_ireland.pdf

    First, EU regulations will apply to all goods in Northern Ireland. This means checks at the border.
    Second, NI will remain in the UK’s customs territory. It will therefore benefit from UK trade policy. But it will remain an entry point into the single market. So UK authorities will apply UK tariffs to countries coming from third countries as long as goods entering NI are not at risk of entering the single market. If they are at risk of entering the single market, EU tariffs will apply.
    Third, on VAT, the plan will maintain the integrity of the single market, while respecting the UK’s digital wishes.
    And, fourth, there will be a consent mechanism. Four years after the arrangements starts, the Northern Ireland assembly will decide by a simple majority if these arrangements stay. DUP do not get a veto

    No deal it is then because I can't see that liar ever getting anything through the parliament.

    Sounds like a win for the EU which finally gets rid of their cancerous member one way or another

    Parliament can amend the deal to include a confirmatory referendum and a requirement to seek an extension. The beauty of British Parliamentary democracy is that Parliament is sovereign.
