After reading a lot of BU people's wild claims about the HK agreement, as if any signatory to the agreement itself thought it still mattered, I figured I'd look it up myself to see what exactly was agreed to. I already superficially trusted the arguments provided by Greg and Luke as to who technically broke it, but after seeing it, I was surprised just how much BUers have tried to spin this as some kind of smoking gun.

Well there's no spinning the truth. Full quote from the agreement:

We will continue to work with the entire Bitcoin protocol development community to develop, in public, a safe hard-fork based on the improvements in SegWit. The Bitcoin Core contributors present at the Bitcoin Roundtable will have an implementation of such a hard-fork available as a recommendation to Bitcoin Core within three months after the release of SegWit.

How were the miners going to agree to a hardfork based on the improvements in SegWit if they never intend on activating SegWit?
