But his tone is far from the promise he made before last December`s general election to have a “ready-to-bake” Brexit withdrawal agreement. To make the situation even more tense, Mr Johnson intends to introduce new legislation that could undermine elements of the PREVIOUSly ratified UK withdrawal agreement – the agreement that dictated the terms of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. It was worse when Cleverly followed the hat trick on Sky, ITV and bbc by insisting that Boris Johnson had not lied when he talked about a “oven ready” deal, because all he had promised was a withdrawal deal that was ready in the oven. Unsurprisingly, James was flushed by Kay Burley, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and Dan Walker. There may not have been a conscious being all over Britain – even Boris, who can normally believe his own fib – who thought that “ready to bake” only applied to the withdrawal agreement. “It is ready to be used, and every Conservative MP elected in this election, the 365 of them, has pledged to vote for this agreement immediately.” The proposition that Britain could sign the withdrawal agreement with its fingers crossed is a perfect fit for a government of liars. The withdrawal agreement signed in January by Britain and the EU provides for a transition period until the end of this year for both sides to negotiate a new trade deal. Boris Johnson has been criticised for “playing” part of his Brexit withdrawal deal after calling it a “baking loan.” In May, Steve Baker, former chairman of the European Research Group, wrote in Le Critic, Cummings “said that we should vote for the initial withdrawal agreement without reading it, on the basis that Michael Gove could change it later.” This was indeed the Gove line since December 2017: “If the British people do not like the agreement we have negotiated with the EU, the agreement will allow a future government to diverge.” “We just have to put him on the gas mark 4, give him 20 minutes and Bob is your uncle,” he said a few days later in front of a bus endured with GET BREXIT DONE.
