    To paraphase one of our last great political leaders Winston Spencer Churchill "Never in the field of British politics and Brexit was so much expected by so many of so few......only to be bitterly disappointed"

    This deal is just about as bad as any deal could be. It's without redemption, no influence, yet must abide by eu rules.
    It may bring down a sitting PM, force a GE and stop Brexit in its tracks. In other words political instability and economic chaos.

    Not as bad as a hard Brexit with no customs union.

    Don't know if anyone already posted this:
    It's an ERG summary of the main points of the draft in 7 pages:
    Your right to know
    It makes pretty unpleasant reading in my view.

    The Customs union is the problem and why we can not trade as an independent nation .

    Nope. Yet more misinformation

    The draft has the provision for an extension to the transition period. From Dec 2020 to Dec 20XX (it's now looking like 20XX will be 2022). During that time the UK will be being treated as an EU member, which means it will one getting benefits from shared EU programs. The WA "divorce bill" of ~£40bn was calculated on the basis of the UK transition lasting until Dec 2020.

    The £10bn figure is to cover payments until 2022.

    If we leave with no WA then we won't have to pay the £10bn (or presumably the £40bn) but we won't get any transition (or probably future arrangement either).
