France’s President, Emmanuel Macron, has praised the new agreement for the UK to Leave the EU, saying it “allows us to respond to the political and technical concerns that both we and the British share”.

He said he was “confident this can be ratified by a vote of the British parliament.”

Macron’s adviser Mr Gozi expanded on the President’s comments,“We have been talking for three years already. I really don’t see any other solution we could find by pushing the negotiations.”

“It is up to Westminster, but I hope they approve the deal, because it is time Westminster tell us what they want.

Until now they have said only what they don’t want.

I think the Prime Minister of Luxembourg summed it up.

It is not a Brexit or no Brexit, it is a deal or no deal.

I really don’t see any margin for other options at this stage.”

It is increasingly difficult for Remainers to continue to argue against this Deal, given that it unites the following groups:
The Leave campaign,
The Remain campaign,
The President of France,
The Chancellor of Germany,
The President of Ireland
The 24 Presidents & Prime Ministers of the remaining EU
member states.
Jacob Rees Moggs’ ERG,
The rebel Tory MPs
 
It has isolated:
 
The DUP.
The stop Brexit MPs.
Nigel Farage.
 
It’s time to put national interest first, and put this Brexit process behind us.
