A report by 120 offices, written by pro-Leave MPs and lawyers, states that an exit from the transition period with the existing provisions of the agreement would have „infirm“ consequences for the UK and prevent the country from becoming a „fully sovereign state“. Analysis of 100 parts of the Centre for Brexit Policy (CBP) warned that the deal negotiated largely by Theresa May`s government contained „poison pills“ that could undermine British sovereignty and cost the country $165 billion. It is therefore scandalous that the remain establishment and the British Parliament have done everything in their power to undermine the will of the people and make the exit as painful as possible. Remainers will always be embarrassed to entangle the country in a poison pill: the Brexit withdrawal deal. In addition to the declaration on future relations, the withdrawal agreement remains a diversion from our chances and our relations with the EU for decades to come – our future as a nation. Senior Brexiteers have warned Boris Johnson that important elements of his withdrawal deal with the EU are a „poison pill“ that should be replaced in post-Brexit trade negotiations. Boris Johnson`s withdrawal agreement has been described as a „poison pill“ by the influential European research group and would have „infirm“ consequences for the UK and prevent us from becoming a fully independent sovereign state. Opponents of non-Brexit are still in Parliament, including former cabinet minister Greg Clark and former ministers Steve Brine and Stephen Hammond, but most of them have been subdued since the December election result. Pressure to avoid an EU deal is expected to come from Brexiters who have already expressed their displeasure with the withdrawal deal signed by the Prime Minister before the UK leaves in January, particularly with regard to the UK`s financial liabilities.
In July, a report by the Centre for Brexit Policy, backed by Bill Cash and Owen Paterson, called for the withdrawal agreement to be reduced, calling it a „poison pill.“ The hard Brexiteers, who brought down Theresa May over fears that her Brexit deal would leave Britain indefinitely in orbit around Brussels, could have expected a scramble over the deal to replace her successor. While she abandoned the „backstop“ rule they hated so much, she was full of other provisions previously rejected by Eurosceptics, such as a juicy divorce. However, no member of the European research group voted against the deal, but touted Mr Johnson as a political hero who convinced the EU to review the original deal. During the general election campaign, they took to social media to brag about the „ready-to-go“ deal and, after the Conservatives` victory, it was duly introduced into law.
