The UK government and the other 27 EU member states approve the draft agreement. The United Kingdom triggers Article 50. This means that negotiations on the UK`s withdrawal from the EU can begin. The EU and the UK have two years to reach an agreement. Last night, the Prime Minister published 115 pages of tugid text which he intends to have approved by MPs in three days. We did as much as we could, and we realized some horrors. But we won`t have caught them all. Throughout the bill, there are clauses that give ministers the power to adopt rules to implement the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. Schedule 5 of the Act is eight detailed and opaque pages on how these regulations are passed by Parliament. Given the haste of this legislation, the enormous powers given by law to ministers and the lack of effective supervision of the volume of new rules that will be needed, this is another example of how the Brexiter claims that the UK is taking back control is a mirage.
The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 at midnight (23:00 GMT). A transitional period is now in effect until 31 December 2020. During this period, all EU laws and regulations continue to apply in the UK. For businesses and the public, virtually nothing will change. This will give everyone more time to prepare for the new agreements that the EU and the UK intend to conclude after 31 December 2020. It may be an appropriate situation that the authors did not have the time or even to reach the basic level of the agreement to find a cracking name for the “JPD” (Common Political Declaration). The title of the text was later filled in. There is no doubt that this will leave much room for innovative and colourful proposals from Members who now have the opportunity to study the text in depth. On 22 October, the British Parliament agreed to review the Brexit Act.
But she decided it took longer than the British Prime Minister had proposed. This means that it is no longer possible to withdraw with an agreement on the planned date of Brexit, 31 October. The Brexit deal will not come into force until the Brexit law is passed by the British Parliament. This agreement permanently deprives British citizens of their rights. The Joint Committee has the exclusive right to implement and implement the withdrawal agreement and the power to extend the transition period indefinitely or to decide to end the “backstop”. There is no need to refer to the democratically elected members of Parliament again. The EU and the UK reach an interim agreement. It includes a transition period until 31 December 2020, during which all EU rules will continue to apply. It also covers the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. Here, too, the question must be asked whether the firm`s office, in its enthusiasm to maintain bilateral agreements that the other party absolutely wanted to maintain, sold a cheap price at bargaining costs elsewhere. The British Parliament decides that a further extension of the Date of Brexit is necessary because it first wants to examine the corresponding laws before deciding on the withdrawal agreement. The UK government is then asking the EU to postpone the date of Brexit to 31 January 2020.
After the adoption by the British House of Lords on 22 January of the European Union Withdrawal Agreement Act, the bill received royal approval from the Queen. The European Parliament approved the agreement on 29 January.
