The Conservative party is hemorrhaging MP’s as a result, The Prime Minister is clutching onto power by the thinnest of threads and the Brexit deal is set to rock the nation for the next 3 years.
The 585-page document sets out the terms of the UK’s departure and includes details such as how much money will be paid to the EU, details of the transition period and citizens rights.
The deal has left the government in all kinds of trouble, as it has prompted the start of a tumultuous few days for Mrs May, with two senior ministers and several other junior ministers and aides resigning.
