The cornerstones of the discussion on the Brexit Bill were SCOTLAND, agriculture, defense and financial services.
MPs from both sides this morning argued for and against the EU (Future Relationship) Bill, which lays down the legislation required to enact the Brexit agreement.
At 9:50 a.m., the Prime Minister started the discussion. By claiming that the United Kingdom had done everything it was prohibited to do – “have its cake and eat it.”
He said, “Britain can be European and sovereign at the same time”
He said, “I think you will agree that our negotiators achieved their feat with astonishing speed,”
It took about eight years for the Uruguay Round of World Trade Negotiations to reach an agreement, and five years for the EU to reach a trade agreement with Canada, and six years for Japan.’
“We did it in less than a year, and in the midst of a pandemic.”

The agreement was “thin” acknowledged Sir Keir Starmer, Labour Party leader, but said his party had no choice but to vote in favor of the bill, adding that those who did not support a Brexit no-deal.
He said a “skinny deal” was better than a no-deal situation with “lots of flaws” – and there was “no better deal coming in the next 24 hours.”
“There is only one choice today, and that is to vote for the implementation of this deal or no deal.”Today, there is only one choice, and that is to vote for the implementation of this deal or no deal.
He also criticized the lack of access in Europe to key security databases and facilities, and the financial services sector assistance included in the agreement.
“Mr. Starmer said, “In contrast to the absolute uncertainty of a no contract, the deal offers essential safeguards. Agreements with third parties for the continuity of cooperation with Europol and Eurojust exist…. But what was promised is not given in the treaty: a security relationship of unparalleled scope and depth.
“We will no longer have access to EU databases that allow the exchange of real-time data, such as the Schengen Information System for missing persons and objects. Anyone who thinks that’s not important needs to realize that it’s used every day.”

Ian Blackford said that now Scots are going to choose which union they want to be in.
“He said, “Now that we see the size of the bad Brexit deal, the Scottish people’s question is clear: in which Union do they want Scotland to be?
Which future can we choose: Britain or the European Union’s broken Brexit? ”
Asked by Conservative MP Liam Fox if he understood how much economic harm would be done to Scotland if entry to the UK single market became independent and lost, Blackford said he should be ashamed.
He responded, ‘[Liam Fox] seems to be threatening the lack of access to the people of Scotland. Is that really the message to the people of Scotland that the Conservatives want to send? Shame on him, then.
Theresa May supported the agreement and announced that she would vote for it, while the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Douglas Ross, also said he thought it was a welcome deal.
The MP for Moray mocked the SNP’s decision to vote against it, saying, “While some thought it could not be done, it now seems clear that some hoped it could not be done, because Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP will vote for exactly that, despite spending months suggesting the dire consequences of a no-deal Brexit.”
“Nicola Sturgeon is the same politician who just a few weeks ago said, and I quote, ‘A deal, any deal is better than no deal’. The leader of the SNP in Westminster said, and again I quote, in the House of Commons, ‘No deal will result in unprecedented harm’.”
He added that it was time to “put the focus back on supporting jobs, individuals, families and communities.” now that the Brexit agreement had been decided.
