It’s Understood EU And UK Have Officially Signed On Dotted Line Of New Brexit Deal
It’s understood the EU and UK have officially signed on the dotted line of the new Brexit deal.
Officials from Westminster and Brussels met in London this morning.
June will mark the seventh anniversary of the Brexit vote and it’s been a long, difficult and divisive road to get here.
EU Chief Negotiator Maros Sefcovic is in London today to ratify the Windsor Framework with British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly.
He’s said he hopes the deal on trade in Northern Ireland can begin a new chapter of EU – UK relations.
This week the Northern Ireland Secretary Chris Heaton Harris said there won’t be a reopening of the deal, despite DUP objections.
The unionist party is seeking more assurances on the agreement and voted against the Stormont Brake element of the deal in the House of Commons, though the measure passed with a commanding majority.
Tricky political waters for the DUP, the deal is struck with the British Government clear it’s the last word, but as long as Jeffrey Donaldson’s party remains unhappy there won’t be a Government in Northern Ireland.
