#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: Editor says this is what we know so Boris Johnson is on his way to Brussels to take his Brexit victory lap. As well he might: He’s achieved something he’d been told was impossible and has agreed a new Brexit deal with the EU Commission, replacing the thrice-defeated arrangement Theresa May struck with Europe last year: Crucially, it revolves around a new arrangement for Northern Ireland that allows him to declare that he has got rid of the “backstop,” the hated fallback position that kept the whole of the UK tied to the EU customs area CNN reports.
Reuter’s ……Britain and the European Commission have agreed a new withdrawal accord that will be presented to European Union leaders later on Thursday, the EU’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said………..“Discussions have at times been difficult, but we have delivered,” Barnier told a news conference, moments after the EU executive announced a deal. Barnier said in the new deal, citizens rights will be guaranteed, Britain will meet its EU budget commitments, the transition period will last to the end of 2020 and possibly another year, and both sides found a “legally operative solution” to avoid hard border in Ireland. ……………Reporting by Brussels newsroom
But let’s not get carried away: As he swept out of Downing Street this morning, Johnson left no small amount of chaos in his wake: Like May, Johnson appears to not have secured the support of his Northern Irish allies, the Democratic Unionist Party.
The DUP issued a statement before news broke that a deal had been done, saying that “as things stand, we cannot support what being suggested.” Minutes ago, they confirmed that statement still pertains.
So why has Johnson agreed a deal without the nod from the DUP? It’s entirely possible that Johnson is attempting to bounce the them into supporting him.
