EU to approve "deal" - but what next?


Today the EU Council of Ministers (the government of the EU) will approve the terms of the UK's withdrawal from the EU. Commentators are calling this "the deal" but, in fact, this is just the start of a process for determining our future relationship with the EU.

Boris Johnson urges parliament, in his characteristic simplistic way, "to junk the deal". Indeed this seems to be the dominant view across parliament. But given the EU will not renegotiate the arrangement are we now at a deadlock? Will the Prime Minister realise that an exit from the EU is not possible to deliver and that an Exit from Brexit is now the desirable outcome?

I hope so for the sake of all the people of North East Somerset.
