Brexit trade talks: UK and EU to ‘go the extra mile’ in effort to agree deal

BBC NEWS REPORT – 13 December 2020  – Talks extended to the end of December 2020

The UK and EU have agreed to carry on post-Brexit trade talks after a call between leaders earlier on Sunday.

In a joint statement, Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said it was “responsible at this point to go the extra mile”.  The pair discussed “major unresolved topics” during their call.

The two sides had said Sunday was the deadline for a decision on whether to continue with talks, with the UK set to leave EU rules at the end of the month.

The leaders agreed to tell negotiators to carry on talks in Brussels “to see whether an agreement can even at this late stage be reached”.

    Absolute MSM speculation !

    No deal uk reverts to WTO rules ….
    Hopefully influence change in rules.
    Freeer and fairer trade…
    No “single market” but “free market” principles/practice.
    EU USA BRICS have protectionist policy in place …unfair to ROW.
    USD$ remains world reserve currency.

    2021 will be year of change
    Hopefully for the many not the few.

    My two cents !

      “EU USA BRICS have protectionist policy in place …”
      What about the UK immigration policies? I do not see any open borders on the horizon. Every country protects their interests. I would not call that protectionist.

        There is “protectionist” trade policies
        Border protection is every nation states responsibility…protection of its borders.
        Two different issues.
        Free and fair trade means exactly that !
        Free of tax or/and tariffs
        Free borders is politricks !
        Vetted migration way forward.

        Uk still accepts refugees/asylum seekers/economic migrants legally!

        As luck will have it the British isles are an island
        with no land borders ….easier to patrol !
        At a time in history the British were lords of the sea/ocean. How a little islands nation exerted so much power/influence on the planet is indeed interesting.
        A history best forgiven not forgotten!

        My two cents

        The UK voted to leave the EU. Now the want access to the largest market in the world without having to bare the costs. It’s like canceling the golf club membership and expecting to play golf for free at the club.

        Kamtam, if you run your golf club under these conditions, you’ll go bankrupt soon.

        Absolutely hilarious !
        Potus aka Jesus runs golf club !
        Won’t want to compete in criminality !
        Wonder how much of the donations he received to fight election he will refund ?

        Will the newly elected Potus undo his predecessors protectionist policy or revert to
        WTO rules ?
        Let’s see what happens next !
        DJT reversed all of obamarama s policies
        Will Biden do same/similar.
        Politicians are top of the hypocracy scale !
        The bureaucracy of democracy !
        Vote for me and I’ll make us all wealthy !

        Allow donkies vote they elect jackasses !

        God bless USA and save it from its Armageddon !

    Brexit will be followed by Scotland leaving the union and Northern Ireland joining the far more prosperous Irish Republic to the south. If England is lucky, they might be able to retain Wales in the Union. Given that Welsh sheep farmers will loose their most important markets with the UK leaving the EU. 90% of Welsh lamb is exported tax-free into the EU. Brexit and its repercussions will be the final nails in the coffin harbouring the British Empire.

      Absolute hogwash !
      Every referendum has resulted in a more United Kingdom. Politricks !
      “Independance” “dependence” the operative words !
      There is freedom and free trade
      I support Thatchers “free market” in principle and practice.
      “competitiveness” in a word.
      Not EU USA BRICS OPEC “single market”
      Ginormous trading blocks !

      Freeer and fairer exchange of goods and services….free of tax/tariffs/quotas et al

      Competitiveness !

      Survival of the most diverse/competitive of the species

      Darwin updated

        Survival of the most adaptable/diverse/competitive !

        Way forward !

        Time will tell, who is spewing hogwash…..

        Ave kamtam, morituri te salutant
