At the end of last year, warned attorney general Geoffrey Cox to the Uk would be caught in a perpetual plan b (”backstop”) by the skilsmässoavtal as then negotiated.
After Monday's last-minute agreement in Strasbourg waited many EU-critical members (”brexitörer”) of the Tories and stödpartiet DUP, therefore, in the Cox opinion.
It arrived on Tuesday:
– The legal risks to the Uk get stuck in reservlösningen remains as before. But basically, this is now a political decision, " said Geoffrey Cox, with characteristic deep voice in the british house of commons.
that the british are now given a greater opportunity to press the EU, the negotiations would lock themselves in the next step.
" this reduces the risk that the Uk will get stuck in reservplanen on the grounds that the EU is acting in bad faith, he explained.
the Same is also underlined Brexit-minister Stephen Barclay earlier on Tuesday.
the Problem is just to determine what ”evil intent” actually means. That the EU seriously would like to keep the british against their will, by a set a ”trap” in Ireland, there are not many who think – in addition to the most radical brexitörerna.
many times asserted that they want to find a solution that avoids an irish border without physical controls. But – and this is the crux of the matter – it does not mean that you are successful before the transition period is over.
Under the agreement, it is then reservplanen is supposed to enter into force. Then would the Uk stay in a customs union with the EU, until a solution is reached. At the same time, northern Ireland continued to be the subject of many of the internal market regulations.
No one wants to actually see such a solution. But the sheer risk to the Uk is stuck in a customs union with the EU, without any clear way out, is something that the circle a hundred brexitörerna in the Tories are terrified of. Also, the northern irish, northern ireland, the DUP refuse to accept it, because they fear it may be the first step in northern Ireland leave the United kingdom and, instead, amounts in Ireland.
Cox just said that the legal risk that the british captured in reservlösningen persists. As I write this, it is not yet absolutely certain how the DUP and the rebels in the Mays own party will vote. But the task to get the agreement through parliament has just become much more difficult for the prime minister.
