The reception of the agreement in the House of Commons ranged from cold to hostile, and the vote was delayed by more than a month. Prime Minister May has received a motion of no confidence within her own party, but the EU has refused to accept further changes. The most important rights not protected by the UK agreement in the UK are their rights to earn a living through employment or autonomy in another Member State, 67 A previous draft withdrawal agreement contained Article 32 – „Scope of Rights“ – which explicitly defined it but www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/15/job-hunting-britons-in-eu-say-brexit-is deleted in the final agreement.

The Irish backstop is withdrawn and replaced by a new protocol on Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland. The whole of the United Kingdom comes from the EU Customs Union as a single customs territory, with Northern Ireland included in all future UK trade agreements. However, Northern Ireland adopts EU internal market rules for goods (including EU VAT) in order to avoid a hard border and remains an access point to the EU customs union.  The result is a de jure customs border on the island of Ireland, but a de facto customs border in the Irish Sea. EU tariffs (which depend on a free trade agreement between the UK and the EU), levied by the UK on behalf of the EU, would be levied on goods that leave Britain for Northern Ireland and are „threatened“ and then transported and sold to the Republic of Ireland; If this is ultimately not the case, companies in Northern Ireland can apply for discounts on products for which the UK had lower tariffs than the EU.

If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK.
The new political declaration sets out the framework for future relations between the European Union and the United Kingdom and reflects the Government`s desire to conclude an ambitious, comprehensive, deep and flexible partnership on trade and economic cooperation with the EU, with a free trade agreement with the EU, in addition to security agreements and other areas of cooperation. On the European Union side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2020 and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by e-mail on 30 January 2020.  That is why, on 30 January 2020, the European Union also tabled its instrument for ratifying the agreement, concluding the agreement and allowing it to enter into force on the date of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU at 11 .m.
