Here is the reaction from the EU yesterday :-

“The backstop is part of the Withdrawal Agreement, and the Withdrawal Agreement is not open for re-negotiation.”

- Donald Tusk, EU Council President (unelected)

“The Withdrawal Agreement will not be renegotiated.”

- Jean Claude Juncker, EU Commission President (unelected)

“The backstop is part and parcel of the Withdrawal Agreement and this agreement will not be renegotiated.”

- Michel Barnier, EU Chief Brexit Negotiator (unelected)

“The Withdrawal Agreement is not up for renegotiation and is not going to be reopened.”

- Leo Varadkar, Irish Taoiseach (anti-British)

“Olly Robbins remains PM’s chief Brexit negotiator”

- Downing St spokesperson (unbelievable)

Observations

When faced with a weak opponent across the negotiating table, it is generally wise not to take complete advantage. A deal reached under such circumstances never survives.

Only the EU-fanatic political ideologues in Brussels could have imagined that the deal made with Mrs May would stand scrutiny. It is patently the most inequitable, one-sided, and dictatorial draft international treaty ever devised.

For the EU to cry ‘foul’ is wholly disingenuous. For most of last year they were faced with a quisling representing a child. And they took full advantage.

They should have known that any deal struck with such people was unlikely to pass muster.

They only have themselves to blame for negotiating something worse than the Treaty of Versailles.
