Draft Brexit Agreement Suggests 'Check and Control' Borders Could Be on the Wayby 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

Whether or not you spare a thought for UK Prime Minister Theresa May at this time, the whole Brexit process has been something of a headline-grabbing affair for as long as it’s been a certainty. Here at One News Page, we have certainly given the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union some serious coverage – and if the most recent news regarding a ‘leak’ of the final Brexit deal draft is anything to go by, we’re going to be talking about the political process for some time left to come.

News broken by The Independent as well as other British media sources suggest that a leaked draft of the final Brexit agreement makes motions for check and control borders on future EU trade fairly clear indeed. While May has recently confirmed that a draft agreement has taken place in Brussels this week, it seems that politicians and voters back home in Britain may still have something to say about what’s in store come March 2019.

While the supposed draft of the final agreement suggests that the EU will take steps to soften its approach in terms of language and rhetoric, it is alarmingly clear to those opposed to some of May’s recent proposals re Brexit that there will be further bureaucracy expected despite Brexit having partially occurred in the hope of tearing up some of the red tape from the continent. While a withdrawal agreement has been agreed upon by both the UK and the EU, the formal divorce remains up in the air – particularly as certain representatives in Parliament appear keen to oppose the Prime Minister’s current approach to leaving the Union.

It’s thought that ‘checks and controls’ will be put in place following Brexit in an attempt to retain co-operation and regulation with regard to future trade opportunities. While May has outright stated that the UK will leave both the EU’s customs union and single market – both of which have remained controversial sticking points for Brexiteers – some are now concerned that the whole process will essentially wave away one set of red tape to be replaced by a completely new entanglement, at a very high cost to the average taxpayer.

As always, we will keep you up to speed on Brexit one step at a time – breaking down the headline bluster and ever-changing stories upon emergence!
