In 1973 U.K votes to join the European Economic Community which is now a group of 28 countries governed by a continental parliament, commission and council representing each member state. It is using the common currency i.e. the Euro and compromises an area across the European continent where citizens of member states can live and work easily in different areas within the union. Before the passing of the Brexit deal, many former prime ministers tried to leave the European Union but due to lack of support, they failed. Theresa May’s Brexit deal was also refused in the parliament and after rejecting the deal third time she resigned from her post. The justification over rejection was it would create conflict with both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland which is in the European Union as an open border was brought with them into peace.
Current Issue(Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal):
The U.K. suffered losses from Brexit i.e. slow down of the economy, and many businesses moved their headquarters to the European Union and also adversely affected the growth, trade, and jobs. Due to this reason, the United Kingdom deals Brexit. It is the abbreviation used for a British exit. On 23 June 2016, a public vote was held to decide whether the UK should leave or remain and the votes for Leave won by 52% to 48%. The referendum turnout was very high at 72%, with more than 30 million people voting – 17.4 million people opting for Brexit. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal has become law by receiving the assent from the queen after clearing all the stages in parliament. Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal was successful and he said, “At times it felt like we would never cross the Brexit finish line, but we’ve done it. We find ourselves here today, that our parliament has been ignored, our government has been ignored and, against the expressed wishes of the people of Scotland that voted in the referendum and reaffirmed the right of the people of Scotland to determine their destiny, that that has been ignored”. By withdrawing from the EU it can now increase their trade throughout the world. The UK will leave the EU customs union, which is an agreement between European Union (EU) countries not to charge taxes called tariffs on things coming from other EU countries, and it will charge the same tariffs from each other on things coming from outside the EU. Taxes will be paid only on the goods moved from Great Britain to Northern Ireland if those products are considered “at-risk” of then being transported into the Republic of Ireland even though there is legal border between northern Ireland which is in U.K and Republic of Ireland which is in EU but checking would not be done there. Still the list of goods which are considered as at risk is not determined now but according to report it will be decided by the committee of the UK and EU. In the case of regulation of goods i.e. the rules which would be followed for the labeling and manufacturing will follow EU rules instead of UK rules. Though the UK is assuming that the European Parliament also gives the green light, the UK will formally leave the EU on 31 January with a withdrawal deal.

The question in law:
The legitimate question of law arises after withdrawing the European Union Bill that legislation bears the involvement of parliament for its withdrawal and this force to think about future that how and who will make amendments required in the bill and if we observe it without any biasness that of course, the members instead of court and also EU law will get force in the UK after the expiry of the implementation period.
Conclusion(Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal):
Britain decided to withdraw the EU bill as they were facing the problems which were directly affecting their economy. It is the success of the UK for its withdrawal as they were trying for many years but due to lack of support they failed. Though there is a problem that due to unwritten constitution or somehow they didn’t discuss the facts properly and the authoritative powers of legislation are affected and now we have to see the impact of its withdrawal because we can’t measure its consequences.
