IDS taking a hammering for his comments on the WA, he voted for it in Parliament.
The Torys argued we don't need another referendum after the 2017 GE as the public told us what they want when they voted Tory and how they respect the British peoples opinion as it is Sovereign. the British people also voted for Johnsons oven ready deal in the 2019 GE but it is now getting tossed in the bin. the Tories are about to ignore the so called Will of the People and refuse to implement the Brexit the people of this country voted for in 2019. so much for respecting democracy.

Video of IDS saying he will vote for the deal and we have already had over a 100 hrs pf debate so we know exactly what we are voting for.

Pinched.
Brexiteer Iain Duncan Smith has slammed the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement on Twitter despite voting for it in the Commons last year.

The agreement, supported by the Tories, laid out the terms of Britain’s divorce from the EU, which officially occurred on January 31.

But Smith, a fervent Eurosceptic and ex-Tory leader, has now moaned about the agreement he helped push through parliament.

Iain Duncan Smith
Whilst the UK wants to have a good trade relationship with the EU as a sovereign state, the EU has different ideas. They want our money and they want to stop us being a competitor. The Withdrawal Agreement (WA) we signed last year sadly helps them. (1/3)
To avoid their own budget black hole, the EU gets £39billion as a “divorce payment” from us, reflecting our share of the current EU budget. But it gets worse. Buried in the fine print, unnoticed by many, is the fact we remain hooked into the EU’s loan book. (2/3)
You can't be half in the EU & half out, the problem is the WA. It costs too much & it denies us true national independence. This WA giving the EU future control over us has to go. Now Britain faces a £160billion #EU loans bill AFTER #Brexit (3/3)

The MP voted for the deal and also attempted to stop the House of Commons having more time to discuss the agreement, shortly before Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson called an election to force it through.

“Whilst the UK wants to have a good trade relationship with the EU as a sovereign state, the EU has different ideas,” he ranted. “They want our money and they want to stop us being a competitor. The Withdrawal Agreement (WA) we signed last year sadly helps them.”

Britain was a participant in The European Investment Bank and the European Financial Stability Mechanism which issues loans to support investment projects across the bloc.

The UK’s share of liability is around 12% which experts say translates into £160 billion of unpaid loans, four times Britain’s £39 billion divorce deal.

People have shared their frustration on Twitter.

Chris Grey, a professor in Organization Studies at Royal Holloway university, wrote: “So in 2016, despite having no detail on what Brexit meant, people knew exactly what they were voting for. But in 2019, despite having a detailed Withdrawal Agreement, MPs didn’t know what they were voting for.”

“Maybe you should have read it before you voted for it?” Anthony Crutch pointed out.

@Mandoline_Blue said: “Agreements are binding. It pays to read them first. If you don’t know that, what on earth are you doing in government?”

Andrew Parnall argued this was “evidence” that leave voters could not have known what they voted for. “MPs like Mr Smith @MPIainDS certainly don’t,” he added.

There's been nothing democratic about any of it - the background actors who have paid for Brexit to be pushed through always demanded 'no deal' as a final outcome (unless a deal could magically be arranged that gave them the same freedom), but knew that the public wouldn't be convinced to vote for that. Iinstead, they decided to float so many vague fairytale Brexits that enough of the great unwashed masses would be able to latch onto something that sounded positive and start nodding along. They only needed that one 'smash and grab' victory, no matter how slight or ill-gotten, to subsequently paint any attempt to derail the train rushing headlong to disaster as treachery etc.

Suddenly it’s crap?

What a fucking fraud.

Brexit is the biggest theft of democracy in this country for many a year!
