Re: European Defence Agency
In the legally binding Withdrawal Agreement, Article 156 says:
As a layman, this implies to me that we are out of the European Defence Agency from 1st January 2021. Privately I’m thinking that this isn’t great, but if we are really out by 2021, maybe it is not the end of the world.
However, in the Veterans for Britain speech there is reference to the non-binding, as I understand it, Political Declaration where paragraph 104 [a] implies we are involved with future EDA projects. Not good.
Are you saying that:
1. 104[a] of the Political Declaration is May’s unilateral intention to keep us locked into the EDA?
2. If the WA got signed, the PD would also be automatically adopted?
