WE are all tired of hearing about Brexit.

It has been nearly three-and-half years since the UK voted, albeit narrowly, to leave the European Union.

And still we do know on what terms we are splitting from our main economic, political and strategic partners. If we are honest, we are not even sure we are going at all.

So some public impatience with the ongoing political process is understandable. And it is not just voters who are frustrated. Businesses are too. They are not even clear on what conditions they will be trading in just 12 days’ time.

Some people, including some politicians, are now so exhausted by all the uncertainty that they are ready to agree to anything, any deal.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears to be playing to those sentiments. His pitch seems to be “Let’s get this Brexit thing over and done with”. It is almost as if any deal would do.

However, even after these three-and-a-half years there are good reasons not to rush to get Johnson’s latest deal over the hurdle, and in place by October 31.

MPs yesterday backed an amendment to ensure there is adequate time to scrutinise the latest agreement. They were right to do so.

The consequences of Brexit are huge. Whether you support or oppose this monumental change to the UK, it is right that every step be considered, debated and tested.

This is especially the case for MPs in Scotland, whose voters overwhelmingly sided with Remain in 2016.
