Boris Johnson needs my Brexit battle plan to triumph in trade talks with the EU

hen the UK signs up to the Withdrawal Agreement at the end of January it will commit to paying the EU tens of billions of pounds for nothing in return, relinquish its representation in the EU’s various institutions, effectively commit Northern Ireland to remaining in the EU’s Single Market as well as being in the UK’s customs union and the UK itself will enter what is referred to as a Transition Period. By our government’s promises, this period should not last beyond December 2020 and, during it, the UK will go on being a member of the EU’s Single Market, subject to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and liable to pay some £1 billion (net) a month to the EU.
