Brexit means:
1. Our own trade deals! ( But the WA backstop bans these.)
2. Freedom from EU state Aid
and competition rules ( But the backstop signs us up to them - including any future changes -
about which we will now have no say )
3. The ability to cut red tape on environmental, employment and social regs. (But the backstop bans us from doing this, too).
4. No more interference in UK tax affairs. (But the backstop binds us to EU good governance tax principles)
5. Control of our borders! (But the backstop means an open border with a neighbour Ireland and a new hard border between two parts of the UK)
6. More sovereignty! (But we can NOT unilaterally quit the backstop, whereas every EU member has the power to unilaterally leave the EU)
It seems like the May deal not only fails to deliver on Brexit promises, it actually does the precise OPPOSITE. It delivers less freedom, less control and less sovereignty than EU membership. And, unlike EU membership, there is no unilateral way out...
