Whist the EU side of the negotiations has remained largely unchanged from its statements back in 2016 following the Brexit vote, the same stance cannot be said of the UK. It is important that the UK be as transparent as possible to ensure that UK citizens are able to make the government accountable to its word, or else the EU's bargaining chip will go greater and greater as time ticks closer to the end two years later...

It seems unavoidable that the UK will have to subscribe the EU law through ECJ decisions both during and after the divorce process. The ECJ is likely to have to rule on whether the final exit treaty itself complies with EU law under Article 218.11 TFEU. The Council legal service thinks that Article 50 in itself does not authorise such a reference to the ECJ and it would be up to the ECJ to rule on the admissibility of such an action. Whilst there is political acceptance by other Member...
