U.K. Cabinet Backs Theresa May’s Brexit Plan — NYT > Home Page

The 400-plus pages of the draft agreement create a standstill transition period. During that time very little would change until the end of 2020, but negotiators would aim to draw up a trade deal.

The withdrawal pact covers three main areas: the financial settlement for the divorce; the rights of British citizens on the Continent and of European Union citizens in Britain; and a mechanism to assure there is no hard border between Ireland, in the bloc, and Northern Ireland, in the United Kingdom.

Of the three, the Irish border will present the greatest trouble for Mrs. May, as it has from the outset of the Brexit process.
