EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill Fact Sheet - Northern Ireland
It replaces the ["]backstop["] provisions  in the old Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by the former Prime Minister and rejected by Parliament with a system whereby Northern Ireland remains aligned with EU regulations on goods (including certain laws for VAT on goods).

No tariffs will need to be paid on goods moving from GB to NI, which are not at risk of moving to the EU. Thus the Protocol applies EU tariffs in Northern Ireland except for movements within the single customs territory of the United Kingdom.

Long ago on ET, recommendations for good usage were written into a document called the ETiquette.

Up above there, there's a link to something called the User Guide. Under the heading What are the rules there's a link to The ETiquette.

With your penchant for exhaustively reading legal docs, Cat, I'm sure you've studied this one. But just in case you missed it, here's a brief excerpt:

...on European Tribune, we expect to read thought-through arguments, and expect people to be ready to dig up evidence to support their claims. Doing so won't ensure agreement between opposed sides, but at least people are more likely to take each other seriously. By evidence, we don't mean linkdumps or long quotes from webpages and nothing else -- if you reference something, you are expected to at least point out how you think it is relevant and why you think the source is authoritative.

The main point is "thought-through arguments". Applies to everyone.

Oui's comments on OTHER PEOPLES' DIARIES are usually quite respectful.
