Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Looks like the PM's renegotiated deal on the backstop doesn't amount to much. The Attorney General has published his advice and concludes that while the new agreement appears to be legally binding and would help dig the UK out of a hole if the EU were knowingly and willfully to obstruct the removal of the backstop, it doesn't do anything to guarantee its removal if both parties fail to find a solution. No surprise there, then.

However, the legal risk remains unchanged that if through no such demonstrable failure of either party, but simply because of intractable differences, that situation does arise, the United Kingdom would have, at least while the fundamental circumstances remained the same, no internationally lawful means of exiting the Protocol’s arrangements, save by agreement.
Anyone challenging Blueangel's assessment of how the vote this evening will go?
