Iain Duncan Smith Withdrawal Agreement

Indeed, Duncan Smith later confirmed this in an article falsely stating that the withdrawal agreement was a “work in progress” and that the United Kingdom could still “reject” it. He also appears to be trying to disparage the provisions of the citizens` rights agreement – which are already less than what the withdrawal campaign promised in the vote – and falsely claims that the EU refuses to negotiate services (the EU`s proposed trade deal contains 34 pages on this issue). All this can and should be mentioned in the negotiations, since Article 184 of the withdrawal agreement obliges both the EU and the UK to “do their best, [and] in good faith… To take the necessary steps to quickly negotiate the agreements on their future relations mentioned in the political declaration.┬áThese open financial commitments, combined with the EU`s astonishing refusal to negotiate services – 80% of the UK`s GDP – mean that the EU is acting in bad faith and is violating its own commitments. Mr. Duncan Smith voted in favour of the agreement, which he criticized when it was submitted to Parliament. What does that say? Is the rest of the world saying that the EU cannot be trusted in international agreements? For now, apparently, no. So far, it has done business with a number of different countries and none of them have said, “We do not trust you because you are violating international law,” which it does. But the UK has also violated international law. In fact, it was a Labour government that, in about 2005, refused, as I recall, to introduce the right to vote for prisoners, which came directly from the European Court of Human Rights. All that has happened is that the government has said no. It took 10 years to solve this. This was not resolved because the British government – I think it was a Conservative government at the time and my right-wing friend for Maidenhead (Mrs May) was Prime Minister – implemented it.

No, they renegotiated their implementation and respect and came with a fake number. Iain Duncan Smith says the financial liability signed by Boris Johnson in the withdrawal agreement was too great. The withdrawal agreement allows the Northern Ireland Assembly to end, in certain circumstances, the special protocol at the Irish border – but for the rest, there is no unilateral power to end it. As I have explained in detail, this means that disputes over the interpretation of the agreement must be resolved by its dispute resolution rules. For example, if the arbitrators find an infringement, there could be fines – but there is no question of terminating the contract. Otherwise, it is possible to revise the agreement with the agreement of all parties – but the EU is not interested in further negotiations.
