Boris's deal is a complete surrender which splits the UK and ties us for years still to the EU. It is a capitulation only a nation losing in war would be forced to sign.
Hidden in the small print is indemnifying the Euro which could be a half a Trillion pounds. Boris said May's deal was vassalage this is still May's deal and is even worse.
We lose fisheries, security, our foreign office controlled by the EU, and trade deals have to be the same as the EU's under the jurisdiction of the ECJ. Even free movement continues under yet another name. This deal is worse than May's deal and we still have to pay them £39 billion and then more each year.
This is not acceptable in any form and the only deal is No Deal which is set out in article 50 and cannot be changed by our parliament. It is clear no deal would ever be acceptable to the EU or ourselves. Only the Brexit party is fit to honour the referendum result and will honour your vote.

I think we agree across the House that there is a climate emergency and that the UK must be a leader, not a follower, when it comes to low-carbon living. I welcome the pledge that the Environment Bill will enhance and not reduce the UK’s standards, but will the Prime Minister commit today to reinforce that ambition with a clear non-regression clause, as we have on workers’ rights, and...
Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I am seeking clarification on the implications of the Benn Act for the proceedings over the next week or so. I am happy to put this in writing if that is helpful, and I am sorry for not having done so already. The Benn Act, as you know, was amended by the amendment put forward by my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock). You may...
I thank the right hon. Gentleman for giving way. I wondered whether he had taken sections of his speech from Jon Lansman. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, when it comes to workers’ rights, the EU is not God? The fact is that local authorities up and down the UK have to outsource contracts to the European Union to the detriment of workers in their local communities. We have seen a...
