EU Says the UK Must Obey Its Laws During Post-Brexit Transition
According to the EU, the UK has no right to object to new rules due to pass until its final exit on the 29th of March, 2020, despite not being involved in any decision-making.
While this is arguably leaves Britain a "vassal state" to Brussels, it retains the "status quo" for EU and eventually may negotiate even harder. Initially, the priority was for Britain to be able to agree on free trade pacts with other countries but a main point to be discussed if UK will be able to deny new EU laws as those may be contrary to the interest of the latter.
Finally, with May’s governance welcoming tricky rifts to be emerged openly, Conservative Brexiteer MPs hang on the ‘vassal state’ comment opposing to other Top Ministers arguing that the solution of the transition was the best.
