Will they Read before they Vote?

We hope that MPs will actually read the Withdrawal Agreement Boris Johnson has brought back from Brussels before they vote on it.

Compared to the May deal it's much worse. Gone are the legal safeguards against international tax evasion (we wonder why!) and for rules to ensure access to trade in the single market.

Gone too are genuine guarantees on rights for employees and on environmental standards. And if your job depends on selling services into Europe, you don't get a mention.

In comes a one way ticket to an Irish border poll, which may explain why nobody in Northern Ireland is keen to vote for it.

This isn't a deal for a United Kingdom, so how can it unite the country?
