Government drops plans to break international law
By Ellen Nicholson
The government is dropping it's controversial plans to break international law in relation to Brexit, following a behind-the-scenes deal between the UK and the EU, it has announced. But EU diplomatic sources warned that while the U-turn was a "reset moment" for relations with the UK, it was not a gamechanger for trade talks, which remain deadlocked.
All this posturing, lost valuable time for a meaningful deal to be struck and has made Britain a laughing stock internationally. There never was an 'oven ready deal' and government ministers such as Gove and Johnson himself who before the 2016 referendum, said that there was never an intention to leave the single market and customs union have been shown to be economical with the truth if we're being kind, and outright liars if we're not.
