We have a huge opportunity to make great trade deals around the world, with countries like New Zealand, Australia, Canada and many others. They are lining up to strengthen their trade with Britain. The withdrawal agreement does not facilitate these agreements, but delays the UK`s ability to conclude trade deals until we are released from the EU after Brexit. It is scandalous that Germany is now seeking reparations from the United Kingdom because it has the audacity to want to break free from German chains. On 15 November 2018, the day after the agreement and the support of the British government were presented, several members of the government resigned, including Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for leaving the European Union.  As various members of the Security Community have indicated, the withdrawal agreement is the worst of both worlds, with the UK pledging to share secret service data with the EU, regardless of our desire to do so. These include information on which we cooperate with non-EU states. This would jeopardize our security position within the EYES intelligence-sharing community – America, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. We have much closer relations with these countries than with the EU. We cannot compromise our trust agreement with our important allies. The agreement is so toxic that it would be entirely legitimate under international law to reject the treaty, and that is precisely what the British government should do if the EU refuses to adjust its effects. The withdrawal agreement provides, in accordance with Article 6 (“the EU and the United Kingdom are doing their best to conclude and ratify such an agreement before 1 July 2020”), which means that there is no legal guarantee under the withdrawal agreement itself which guarantees the fishing rights of the British fishery.
This is the mention of “best endeavours is not a binding term. The Brexit withdrawal agreements essentially stipulate that the EU will continue to apply tariffs until a separate agreement is reached. There is no terminology in the withdrawal agreement that would guarantee us the ability to “take back control of our waters.” Instead, we would be open to blackmail by France and other EU Member States who want access to our fishing waters to reach a broader trade agreement. On 15 January 2019, the House of Commons voted with 230 votes against the Brexit withdrawal agreement the largest vote against the British government in history.  The government may survived a vote of confidence the next day.  On March 12, 2019, the House of Commons voted 149 votes against the agreement, the fourth-biggest defeat of the government in the history of the House of Commons.  A third vote on the Brexit withdrawal agreement, widely expected on 19 March 2019, was rejected by the House of Commons spokesman on 18 March 2019, on the basis of a parliamentary convention of 2 April 1604, which prevented British governments from forcing the House of Commons to vote several times on a subject already voted on by the House of Commons.    An abbreviated version of the withdrawal agreement, in which the annex political statement had been withdrawn, consisted of the test of “substantial amendments,” so that a third vote was held on 29 March 2019, but was rejected by 58 votes.  “This is what is in the national interest, and that is what focuses on the product that is fighting this pandemic.” The EU issued a statement about as furious as any statement I have ever seen in such a context – and called on the UK government to withdraw controversial plans to end last year`s agreement with the EU by the end of the month and threatened to take legal action if it did not.
