The most important elements of the draft agreement are:  On 15 November 2018, the day after the agreement was presented and the support of the British government, several members of the government, including Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for leaving the European Union, resigned.  EU officials do not seem to care about Johnson`s deadline of 15 October. The European Union`s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, had set a final deadline at the end of October. EU officials say tey has proposed solutions for stumbling blocks on `fair competition`, fishing and the legal requirements of the agreement. But it seems that their British colleagues have not made similar concessions. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has threatened to withdraw from trade negotiations with the European Union if no deal is reached by mid-October. He also hinted that he might withdraw from the Northern Ireland Protocol. Negotiations between EU representatives and the UK government are expected to continue in London on Tuesday. However, European officials are likely to see a declaration of war in the announcement that the British government will publish parts of the internal market law on Wednesday and announce that these aspects of the withdrawal agreement could be repealed. EU officials have always said that there will only be a trade deal if the UK government respects this agreement. “Prime Minister, there is no good result in #Brexit,” Manfred Weber, a German MEP for the Bavarian Christian Social Union, wrote in a tweet to Johnson.
Instead of taking Northern Ireland hostage, it would be better if you kept your word and supported the withdrawal agreement. Can we trust your promise? The 599-page withdrawal agreement covers the main areas: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was accused on Wednesday of presiding over a “rogue state” when his government introduced a law that deliberately violates its EU withdrawal treaty as part of the chaotic countdown to a full Brexit divorce. The British government is becoming more and more provocative. This weekend, the chief Brexit negotiator, David Frost, said he was not afraid to escape trade negotiations with the European Union – and that was just the beginning. On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson set a deadline of mid-October for an agreement between Britain and the Bloc. If there were none, he said, the UK would be preparing for a future without a deal. The growing audacity on behalf of British officials comes ahead of the planned publication of an internal market law that would undermine the fundamental principles of the recent withdrawal pact. The behaviour could be interpreted as bluffing if it were not the Northern Ireland Protocol and the fact that Britain might no longer be able to comply with certain aspects of the withdrawal agreement. The British Parliament approved the draft agreement by adopting on 23 January 2020 the implementing laws (the 2020 Withdrawal Agreement Act) of the European Union (withdrawal agreement). Following the signing of the agreement, the UK Government adopted and tabled the UK`s ratification instrument on 29 January 2020.  The agreement was ratified by the Council of the European Union on 30 January 2020, after approval by the European Parliament on 29 January 2020.
The UK`s withdrawal from the EU came into force on 31 January 2020 at 11 .m GMT, when the withdrawal agreement came into force in accordance with Article 185. The Prime Minister hailed a “fantastic moment” for the country after embarking on the historic agreement that paves the way for the UK`s exit from the European Union next Friday.
