The ERG are now calling for an abolishment of the Northern Ireland protocol, which would tear up the deal we made.
The deal which was claimed as closure and sung with high praises as a means of exiting the EU, and one which was portrayed as being fair to all sides and one to try and see positives in for the critics. Two sodding months was all it took for them to change tune and go from demeaning critics as negative naysayers to criticising themselves.
Just as the withdrawal agreement was the best thing ever at the time and became a traitorous stab in the back, the exit deal has gone from being something great to an awful restriction on the UK, according to Brexiters like the ERG. When people call for remainers to unify behind Brexit and see the good, perhaps they should bear in mind that things like this is why there was never going to be unity. It was obvious that this was going to happen and many won’t want to unify behind an idea for the good of the country when a significant chunk of those arguing such never believed in it themselves, and were just shouting about its greatness to own the remainers.
