The post-Brexit transition period, due to be completed in December 2020, can currently be extended by mutual agreement for up to two years. Boris Johnson has called on MPs to back a bill that amends the Brexit deal he signed with the EU in January. The Democratic Unionist Party, which insisted that the withdrawal agreement be amended, said the bill was a “step forward” but that the government must ensure that Northern Ireland is not “held in a state aid jacket, unlike the rest of the UK.” He told Sky s Sophy Ridge on Sunday that he was “confident” that the deal could be reached by the deadline, as “many details” were agreed in the political declaration agreed with the EU. As serious as this free trade agreement is, no agreement would be even more dramatic, as all the evidence – so catastrophic that we do not like to consider – shows, with an impact of 7% on economic growth, but 9% of impacts over 15 years that affect not only us, but also our children and grandchildren. We have to recognize that because, under section 33, I am afraid that unfortunately this is a real danger. I would like to encourage the government to do everything in its power in the weeks and months ahead to prevent this. Asked whether the legislation would be the same as that introduced in the last Parliament, the spokesman said: “You will have to wait for publication, but it will reflect the agreement we have reached with the EU on our withdrawal.” Downing Street said the government planned to ask the new Parliament to hold its first debate and vote on Friday on the withdrawal deal – the law needed to ratify Brexit. Of course, we hope that what will be agreed in future relations will destroy the need for many special regimes for Northern Ireland. However, the joint committee will have a say in this and it is not clear that all future relations will apply to Northern Ireland. We want to continue this discussion with the Government, because we want Northern Ireland to take full advantage of future relations and any free trade agreement with the European Union. We have a land border with the European Union and an agri-food sector that goes beyond it, and we recognise that arrangements must be taken to facilitate this ongoing trade, but we do not want any barriers to trade with the rest of our country. It is absolutely necessary. Nandy voted against the law Friday, along with others who hoped hopefuls Rebecca Long-Bailey, Keir Starmer, Clive Lewis and Emily Thornberry.
Our economy will be smaller, weaker and poorer as a result of our exit from the European Union. What for? Because of the ideology of the Fan Boys of Brexit , the Leave.EU campaign that currently run this government. Despite the Prime Minister`s assertions, Brexit is already affected by our economy. Analysis of the Scottish Chief Economist`s State of the Economy report shows that lingering uncertainty leads to a deficit of half a billion pounds for business investment in Scotland.
