Legal advice underlines May's deal disaster

Legal advice now released by the government reveals the full madness of what is on the table, requiring the UK to remain in the backstop “even if the parties believe that talks have clearly broken down and there is no prospect of a future relationship agreement”.

The DUP’s Leader in Westminster, Nigel Dodds, is furious and tweeted: “Devastating from AG (Attorney General)….The legal advice just published proves NI would be in full EU Customs Union while GB is not.

“Goods passing from GB to NI will be subject to a declaration process. ‘GB is essentially treated as a third country by NI for goods passing from GB into NI'”.

He followed up by saying: “The events of recent days have exposed the Government.

“How can they possibly recommend such a bad deal to Parliament and the people of the United Kingdom?”

The DUP’s Dodds also confirmed once again that “we have no choice but to vote this down”.

This deal is a catastrophe that seems to have zero prospect of getting through Parliament. Theresa May’s government has become a total shambles.

Westmonster will always fight for Brexit. Stand with us.
