“We may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing, but let us not forget for a moment the toil and efforts that lie ahead.”
Those were Winston Churchill’s words to the nation at the end of the 1945 war in Europe. As Parliament approves the EU (Future Relationship) Bill so Boris Johnson might well say the same thing to the country today. The passing of the agreement marks a beginning as well as an end. An end to Britain’s membership of the EU and the beginning of a close relationship.
