    I just felt that it wasn't the usual glib Telstar one-liner, so I copied it into Google.

    Lo and behold...

    I wonder how many other Telstar posts would produce a similar result if copied into Google?

    On the other hand, who really gives a toss?

    I think she's only stating the obvious - the backstop stays.

    I don't know if that's true. IIRC the UK has already given a legal commitment to the Backstop which stands outside of the WA deal. It's a grey area.

    An Irish border backstop installed in the case of a no-deal Brexit would continue to apply "unless and until it is superseded" by a new agreement, UK government legal advice says.

    The position statement released on Monday afternoon also said Britain faced paying extra money to the European Union if the implementation period after the UK leaves in March has to be extended.


    The 43-page Legal Position On The Withdrawal Agreement was published after the UK's government lost a parliamentary vote calling for the full legal advice to be released.
