The Telegraph article also omits the fact that the EU offered the UK an extension. As I and others said at the time, this would have given us more chance to strike a better deal.
You don't know the Telegraph, imo. The article isn't a pander - it is written by one of the wing (to which I belong) that bel;ieves that the EU is out to get us.

On the bit I've highlighted, the extension offer would only have prolonged the agony, and we'd have been paying into the EU, which is what they wanted. They are not a reasonable institution.

It is beyond me why Johnson signed up to the Deal.
