UK Must ‘Break Free’ from EU Divorce Agreement

Boris Johnson has been advised to rip up the EU-approved withdrawal agreement, seeing it would still leave the European Union with too much control. Breitbart reported:

The withdrawal agreement, signed in January 2020, leaves Brussels with having too much say over issues including state aid and British laws, according to the Centre for Brexit Policy, which campaigns for a “real” Brexit, where the UK regains full control of her laws, courts, borders, and trade policy without condition.

The think tank is reportedly backed by several key lawmakers across the political spectrum. Its director-general John Longworth said in comments reported by Reuters: “Deeply embedded in the Withdrawal Agreement are sweeping powers for the EU over much of our commercial and national life.”
