The National:

BORIS Johnson’s Brexit European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill has cleared the Commons with a majority of 99.

The legislation allows the UK to leave the EU with a deal on January 31. The Tory government, however, has refused to extend the negotiation period beyond the end of 2020, with Brussels’ chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier insisting hopes of having a full free trade deal by the end of the year are unrealistic.

The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford warned the Brexit plan will cause a constitutional crisis for the United Kingdom, while further fears have been raised about the stripping of Erasmus study programmes and children’s rights.

Tory MPs, during a Commons debate on the Bill, brushed off criticism, arguing unhappy MPs should have voted for deeply unpopular deals proposed by Tory leaders in 2019.

SNP MP for Kilmarnock and Loudoun Alan Brown encapsulated their sentiments perfectly.

“Isn’t it ironic that the Conservatives are now saying: ‘You should have voted for our crap deal and no luck we’ve made the deal even crappier. So get it up ye!’

“Does that not sum it right up?”
