Background

On the 25th of November both the UK Government and the European Union came to an agreement on the proposed departure from the EU. After an historic defeat in the House of Commons on the 15th of January, 2019 by a majority of 230 votes the PM has now decided to go back to the EU over the backstop.

Additional Details

Under section 5 (ii) of the Belfast argeement, 1998, there is agreement to " to use best endeavours to reach agreement on the adoption of common policies, in areas where there is a mutual cross-border and allisland benefit" The Government's own economic analysis published in November 2018, shows that a no deal scenario will have roughly a 10% decrease in GDP.
The issue is that EU have firmly stated that they will not re-open negotiations with the UK over the agreement and remove the backstop.
