I fervently hope that is nothing more than a rumour.
I haven't seen any details of the agreement yet, as I was on night shift until 8am, then some kip, then took swmbo to Sainsburys, before back to work in half an hour.
I don't expect it to be anything to cause me to want to dance in the streets though. May has given in to them almost every step of the way, so I will be surprised if she has suddenly grown a spine.

Well I have a suspicion that she has done alright. In fact it could be both sides have done alright.

Could it be that for whatever fee agreed we end up with trade as normal, plenty of immigrants still prepared to come to do the low paid jobs Brits don't want BUT with the ability to say no to anyone we don't like the look of - like Romanian gangster.

The pound recovered a bit so it must be good news ;D

Mr Farage seems less than impressed. Calling it a betrayal and leaving the EU in name only. :)

Surrender is another word he used.

I'm not concerned about Brexit. It will be so watered-down compared to what was promised it will probably have little impact.

From what I've seen it could have been worse.  :-\

However, it has to be approved by the EU parliament and I wonder whether Labour's MEP's will vote in Britain's national interest this time?  ::)

It does not need to be said that some people will be happy and others disappointed at the end of all the negotiating.  That is life in politics.  You just cannot please all the people all the time; far from it.

Let's just do what Farage is not doing; leave our conclusions to March 2019.  As for him he will never be happy as it would be the end of public and media interest in him, yesterdays man. :P

8 years under the jurisdiction of the ECJ. Do  I have that right?

Can't believe that is what 17 million Brits voted for.

As I understand it this is only for EU people living here and then only on a voluntary basis if the Supreme Court decides to refer a case to the ECJ for a decision on EU law.  Otherwise the ECJ will remain the highest court in the land until the end of any transition period or if no transition period can be agreed then until BREXIT Day on 29th March 2019. 

Otherwise I think that the government has agreed that our courts will 'take account' of decisions by the ECJ, but I suspect that in many cases they take account of decisions in courts around the world when reaching a verdict anyway.

Very unusual indeed, but there is quite an interesting article on the subject in Huffpost.

Huffington Post make The Guardian and Gideon Osborne's free rag The Metro look like rabid Leaver's rags in comparison, so I would take anything they say with a pinch of salt. Many of the comments by John Redwood in his daily diary have been interesting where he has consistently stated the Government's true position that really shows up how sour, treasonous and dishonest many Remoaners have been and how much they have tried to undermine and make our Government look weak and about to fail and how much they have assisted the EU Commission. The traitor who edits the FT is a case in point when he was wined and dined by Junkier and egging him on to not accept less than 100bn. >:( >:( >:( Personally, I think he should be charged with treason, along with a few others. :y :y :y
