So Boris is now seemingly prepared to acquiesce to May’s abysmal withdrawal agreement on the basis of securing an end date for the backstop. He and the rest of the so-called Tory Brexiteers are apparently going to conveniently forget the other appalling elements that make her deal totally unacceptable in order to save their own skins, most notably a legal obligation to pay in the region of £39 billion to the EU without any certainty on our future trading relationship and the significant continuing role for the European Court of Justice, preventing us from restoring democratic control over our law making.
These are two hurdles to our becoming an independent self-governing democracy which Parliament suddenly seems set to disregard in the clamour to avoid a true Brexit. Without remedy to these fundamental flaws, and without the guts to walk away on WTO terms if they are not forthcoming – which of course they won’t be – the people’s voice will have been ignored.
