Are you listening to the Brexit car crash on the news, but not sure what this "backstop" business is all about? You’re not alone! Many people are wondering what the backstop really means, so today I thought I’d take a look at the backstop deal Mrs May has negotiated and explain the implications for the UK.
This is the protocol by which the entire UK will be forced to remain within a Customs Union with the EU if no deal is made by 2020, and with the way things are looking, I’m sure that we’re going to end up triggering this backstop deal.
I hope my explanation of the issue can clear things up a little, and shine some light on what shouldn’t be such a complicated issue.
