EU and UK Agree on a Deal. Will Parliament too?

 In Brexit

This morning the EU and the UK have agreed on a new deal. A period of long and hard negotiations has come to an end. If it is up to Juncker and Johnson, the UK will leave the EU on October 31st based on this deal.

Hold Your Boat! We Are Not There Yet!

There is however one big hurdle that still needs to be taken and that is getting the approval from the Members of Parliament in London. There is already one party against the deal. The DUP has announced they are against the new proposal, because of what it means for the border situation between Ireland, Northern Ireland and England:

We have been involved in ongoing discussions with the government.

As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues and there is a lack of clarity on VAT.

We will continue to work with the government to try and get a sensible deal that works for Northern Ireland and protects the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom.

Sources are saying that even if a deal is agreed on, it is a huge challenge to get everything before November 1st. For now, getting it through Parliament is top priority:

Parliament will vote this Saturday. It will be an interesting weekend!
