The UK parliament is very interesting in the way it deliberates and is organized... The brexit, on my opinion, is a bad deal because it seems to me that they want to leave EU and still keep some advantages that they are granted for belonging to EU block. Do they really want to leave? Is it really advantageous for them?
It will never be a 100% split from the EU as we will always have ties and some laws governed by them. What Brexiteers want is more freedom in how we run our country, as well as deciding our own trade deals etc. Currently, a lot of our laws are decided by the European Union, not by our courts and Government, we are restricted to some extent on immigration and a lot of people think we pay the EU too much every year (not sure on the exact figures but it is in the 10s of billions).
Do we really want to leave? That is the question.....the 2016 referendum on it was for Brexit but not by a huge margin (52-48% or something like that). The problem is people seem to have forgotten we had the referendum and are calling for a referendum on Brexit, not to mention the petition calling for the whole thing to be called off (currently has 5 million votes and counting)
The biggest stumbling block (and why no deal has been reached) is because of the "Irish Backstop"...it is related to the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic Of Ireland) and, partly, relates to goods tariffs, as well as other things (look it up online if you want more detail as I still don't fully understand it). If it wasn't for the backstop issue, it would have been decided long ago
