It's unclear when this piece by Sir Bill Cash is from (Telegraph website a *nightmare* to use so can't find it there) but - although I agree with some parts - it's inaccurate in a couple of key places

Quick thread👇

2/ This bit is specifically wrong

Article 132 no longer says what Cash suggests it says.
3/ Article 132 has been updated and the final version has a definitive date

See EU website

4/ Next, I don't accept the section where Cash suggests we could "perhaps indefinitely" be subject to laws imposed on us by the EU

That would indeed by monstrous but it's inaccurate
5/ After the transition, we would no be obliged to implement new EU laws other than in a few discrete areas

Cash then talks about changes to the "Common Rule Book" but that's just a line Downing Street made up. Anyway it was part of Chequers and this withdrawal deal is different

This piece suggests an important point has yet to be appreciated -

We are not obliged to follow new EU laws if we are in the Backstop (neither in Great Britain nor Northern Ireland).

Harmonisation is only required on state aid and competition policy
