Both had already voted against leaving the European Union in the 2016 Brexit referendum. Your current rejection is primarily of a symbolic nature – but not good for future interactions and the unity of the nation.
Country head jailed in Scotland Nikola Sturgeon Against the deal that his country’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson considered “Small Present” for Christmas Was presented Edinburgh MPs then voted 92 to 30 against the agreement which, according to Sturgeon and his Scottish National Party (SNP), offered the country “no gain, only mass loss”. How his party refuses to be embroiled in “the grave damage to the ecological, economic and social interests of Scotland”.
In addition to the Greens and the Liberal Democrats, the Labor Party in Scotland also joined the rejection – and received harsh criticism in the rest of the country. Labor leader Keir Starr had sworn his party to support the agreement. Ultimately, it is better to start the new year without a follow-up deal.
State party leader Richard Leonard defended his rebellion against this labor requirement and gained cross-party support when he proposed an extension of the legislation on the Brexit follow-up agreement. Among other things, he calls for a similar replacement for the Erasmus exchange program for students Great britain Ruled out now.
Rare settlement in Northern Ireland – on finding the scapegoat
In the Northern Irish capital of Belfast, 47 MPs voted against the deal and 38 in favor. MPs, such as the Scots, recalled that part of their country had initially voted against leaving the European Union and were unwilling to accept its disastrous consequences.
At least the agreement was, at least on the question of who to blame, between the otherwise paradoxically employed Seniors Féin Party and pro-British Ulster unionists. Both held Northern Ireland’s strongest ruling party, the Pro-British Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) responsible for the unfortunate deal.
As a former coalition partner of British conservatives, the DUP had endorsed the Brexit curriculum – but was later abandoned with its terms as traditionalists gained their own stable majority. amongst other things Johnson broke his promise as a resultThat there would be no customs control between Northern Ireland and the rest of the Kingdom – which would come into force from 1 January 2021.

The DUP dismissed maritime border crimes effective from January. Rather, by offering an alternative to maritime borders, this side created this situation – control of land borders with the Republic Ireland – was refused, DUP announced. A difficult land border was also rejected by the European Union, which endangered peace on the Irish island.
Settlement despite frustration in Cardiff
Wales was the only part of the country other than England to approve Brexit in 2016 – and waved Johnson’s deal with 28 to 24 votes in the current vote. However, Prime Minister Mark Drakeford called the deal “thin and disappointing”. Eventually, you can build the deal and make better contracts for the future, the head of the country said.
Unlike the Labor Party members, the Welsh Parliament has a majority of the workers – and the Members of Parliament, clinging to the Labor Party line in support of the agreement.
In a vote on the Brexit follow-up agreement, the state parliaments had handled only a symbolic one. However, his disapproval of the government’s course shows how bad things are for unity in the state.
For example, in Northern Ireland, nationalist Sinn Féin sees the United Kingdom as an opportunity to achieve 100 years of independence from Brexit after annexation. London to regain. “More and more people are wondering what their identity is outside of the European Union and what Brexit has done for their identity,” John O’Dow, Sin Féin MP, who is now in the Northern Irish Parliament. He pointed to Annexation as a possible solution for the Republic of Ireland.
In Scotland, on Christmas Eve, the SNP had advertised independence from Great Britain and EU membership on Twitter: “We never voted for this extreme Tory deal”.
The head of government generously reported against the leadership in London: “The system in Westminster can no longer be repaired,” she said during the vote. Scotland’s opinion was ignored in London at all times “during this nuisance”. Even before Brexit, your SNP was calling for Scotland to become independent of the United Kingdom and, if it succeeds, would like to re-join the EU as a separate country. “We as an independent European country deserve the best possible deal.”
