Onwards with Brexit

January the 29th,( which for Theresa May could potentially be a good day!) is now the day where the Prime minister manages to get MPs to back her on a motion regarding her Brexit. The MPs who ended up supporting her deal did so in which she would have to do get an amended deal through with the EU. This amended deal would contain the removal of the Irish backstop… however, this raises the question of what would replace it?

At the beginning of the Brexit negotiations, the Prime minister didn’t approach it in an ideal way, which would’ve been to ask MP’s what kind of deal she should have been looking/ fighting for and then go to the EU to begin negotiations. However, the opposite occurred as the Prime minister went straight to the EU to only negotiate a proposed deal for 2 years, only to find out it wouldn’t be able to get through her own parliament. The idea from hard ‘Brexiteers’ is ludicrous as a no-deal exit would look extremely bad on both sides.

After the Commons voted on the Brady amendment, the EU’s chief negotiator has said that it is “part and parcel” of the UK’s Brexit deal and will not be renegotiated. The backstop is a consequence of Britain’s own negotiating objectives.
