With regard to the filing of a letter of censure that you specifically asked me, you know that many of my Conservative colleagues have tabled letters, with some declaring that it is no longer possible to distinguish between politics (a disastrous vassal state Brexit only on behalf) and the person (the chairman of the Conservative party). You may also know that the filing of letters is a confidential process and it is up to each member to decide whether or not to have done so to the public. I support this process and this privacy option. Now that the withdrawal agreement has been adopted by the Council of the EU and the extent of the terrible mismanagement of negotiations under the Prime Minister has become clear, I can confirm that I have now sent a letter to the chairman of the 1922 committee calling on the Prime Minister to resign as chairman of the conservative party and cancel the presidential election. That part of the deal would be hard for Brexiters to swallow. You have repeatedly argued that Britain must be able to leave any British customs union if it is to be able to pursue free trade agreements around the world. The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which time the UK will remain in the internal market, to ensure the smooth flow of trade until a long-term relationship is concluded. If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK. When the backstop is released, the agreement states that if “one of the two parties believes that the backstop is no longer necessary, it can render the other without communication.” A joint committee must then meet within six months and both parties must agree on the end of the “backstop”. The project contains ten annexes.

The first is a protocol to maintain an open border between the EU and the UK on the island of Ireland (usually known as the “Irish Backstop”).
