On Tuesday 4 December, the House of Commons will begin five days of debate on the EU withdrawal agreement and accompanying political declaration. We are going to do the same on Generation Brexit. Here is a summary of what the Withdrawal Agreement says: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46237012

We want to know what you think about the Withdrawal Agreement.

  • Is it a good deal, or a bad deal, and for whom?
  • Should MPs vote to accept it, or to reject it, and why? 

MPs will be able to propose amendments to the agreement, and we invite you to do the same. If there is any part of the agreement you would want to see changed, this is your change to tell us about it! Don’t miss your chance to vote! On Tuesday 11 December, when the House of Commons votes on the Withdrawal Agreement, we will be holding our own vote on the Generation Brexit platform.

Since the Democratic Unionist Party have publicly come out to reject PM Theresa May's deal, what could the PM do to gain back her supposedly loyal allies? Most of the MPs have issues with the Irish backstop and so does the DUP MPs. Would the PM postpone the vote to renegotiate something similar to a Norway plus trade deal? What would her support dynamics be if she does?

The biggest barrier in the current withdrawal plan is the political declaration section. This section creates no official long-term relationship between Britain and the EU. As a result, what ends up happening is that this problem is pushed off to some future administration. May isn't dealing with the problem. This has irked many in the Conservative Party because there is uncertainty with regards to what the future is. Many like Boris Johnson feel that, eventually, Britain will just end up...

This Bill is widely percieved as bad for everyone: it has not met any of the agreed six tests and has VERY little support in the Commons. However, there is one group of people that the Bill is good for: The Conservative government. This Bill is only good for one thing - keeping the conservatives in power because, whilst many Conservative MP's may not liek this Bill they will not vote against May in a vote of Confidence and 'risk' a Labour government, the DUP certainly won't 'risk' this. This...

As a LIb Dem, I propose that any EU citizens who have lived in the UK for a period longer than one year, can apply for UK citizenship and gain free travel between the EU and the UK. We also propose that the same will apply to those from the UK in the EU.

We will accept extending the negotiating period until 2021 but require that if that happens, there must be no additional extension period past 2021. There must be a hard date that requires either a full deal or a no deal Brexit.

There will be the possibility of a Northern Ireland backstop until January 2021, after which Northern Ireland will be in the UK customs territory and will not be subject to EU rules.

Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU, highest in the UK at 62%. We wanted to have the least changes as possible if Brexit has to happen. We want the government to negotiaite a Norway-style Brexit in which we still have access to a single market. We’re happen to ahere to EU laws and jurisdiction. Norway is one of the most successful countries in the world and the SNP firmly believes its model would be the least detrimental to our nation. If the Conservative party is unable to come...

Possible amendment from the conservatives is that after breaking from the EU, the UK would be able to re-establish better trade relationships than previously negotiated if countries within the EU wish to do so.

Reject Theresa May’s bad Brexit deal because it fails to protect jobs and living standards, workers’ rights and environmental standards – or provide sufficient guarantees on national security Prevent the chaos of the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal Keep all options on the table to protect the UK from a no deal scenario, with a general election as the best outcome for the country

Jeremy Corbyn’s position represents plain ignorance- whether it is voluntary or just stupid. This is because he believes that the only one deciding on a EU-UK deal is the UK. This is clear as he appeared on Sky News suggesting that an alternative deal could be negotiated during the transition period. This suggest that he is unaware that this period only happens once a withdrawal deal has been agreed. There is no transition without a deal. Moreover there is a hard Brexit with out a...
