#1 Brexit deal is DONE: Boris Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker confirm the UK and EU HAVE agreed a divorce agreement - despite the DUP saying they cannot support it

#2 On the other hand (from Skid's link) - Jo Swinson, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, responded to the news of the agreement being in place by insisting that it must be put to a referendum.

She said: 'The fight to stop Brexit is far from over.

#7 If they don't ratify they own all the problems that might pop up during/after Brexit. If they ratify they toss that hot potato at Boris.

#9 Parliament will not ratify this. The May deal, only worse.
Boris will need to ask for an extension (and check out ditches).
Extension will be granted (what Junker says is irrelevant)
Then the UK will have elections, probably another hung Parliament and a second referendum. This referendum may go either way, but probably be very close.

End result: Groundhog Day
I got you babe... dadada
