Some of the claims aren’t quite correct and need some context.
Could we still have a “no deal” Brexit in 2020 at the end of the transition?
A "no deal" remains a possibility at the end of 2020 even if the withdrawal agreement passes, but this is a different type of “no deal” to the one that’s commonly discussed.
Does the new withdrawal agreement create a border in the Irish Sea?
Checks would have to take place on goods crossing into Northern Ireland from Great Britain.
It’s not true to say a Brexit extension would cost £1 billion
You can say your plan is to leave with a deal, or you can say an extension will cost £1 billion a month, but you can't say both.
GATT 24: new argument, same old problems
A new claim about GATT 24 runs into an old problem: the EU probably won’t agree to it, and it doesn’t explain that it would mean significant barriers to trade with the EU.
Would an extension to Brexit cost £1 billion a month?
Not if you plan to leave with a deal, it wouldn’t.
A new Brexit bill doesn’t allow the EU to unilaterally extend the Brexit date
Parliament has the power to reject an extension date suggested by the EU.
Does a no deal Brexit mean no divorce bill?
It’s highly uncertain. The case could well go to the International Court of Justice.
