The EU and the UK have reached an agreement on the Withdrawal Agreement, with a revised protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (removal of the backstop) and a revised political declaration. On the same day, the European Council (Article 50) approved these texts. The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Ministry`s renegotiation in 2019. The amendments adapt about 5% of the text.  The agreement defines goods, services and related processes. It argues that any product or service lawfully placed on the market before leaving the Union may continue to be made available to consumers in the United Kingdom or in the Member States of the Union (Art. 40 & 41). The Withdrawal Agreement also provides for the United Kingdom to leave the Convention establishing the Statute for the European Schools, with the United Kingdom being bound by the Convention and the accompanying rules relating to accredited European Schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. the end of the 2020-2021 spring semester  Jacob Rees-Mogg to the draft agreement #Brexit: “This is a failure of the government`s negotiating position and a failure to deliver Brexit”: t.co/2mQCM04C9T pic.twitter.com/4r9er46Krp The details of the draft agreement have not yet been published, so we do not yet know the fine print. The political declaration states that provisions on the elimination of sanitary and phytosanitary barriers to trade (animal and phytosanitary health) should be adopted and “based on WTO agreements and going beyond”.
MEP Justine Greening said the deal would leave the UK with less influence and undermine its credibility. Both the draft Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration can have a considerable impact on the British Constitution. . . .
