There will be no downside to Brexit, only considerable upside. David Davis   The day after we vote to leave we hold all the cards and can choose the path we want. Michael Gove

Why should the EU negotiate with an ex-member, that voted to leave ? They should let Britain stand outside in the cold for twenty or twenty-five years. Then maybe let them back in, if they ask nicely.

Hilarious so if  those 27  countries  all had an 3  trillion economy it should   be  81   trillion instead of the paltry 18.4  trillion

Boris Johnson has clashed with Brussels over an 11th-hour attempt to save British passport holders from hours of delays at European airports from the end of the year.

 

The government is seeking continued use by UK nationals of the automatic e-gates used by EU nationals at airports and Eurostar terminals. The move is seen by the European commission as an attempt to keep Britons in faster lanes rather than having to queue up with the rest of the world after the end of the transition period.

 

Quote

A senior EU diplomat said: “Having grown up in Brussels, Boris Johnson values the ability to travel freely to the continent. So it is perfectly apt that the UK is now asking the EU to change its own laws to accommodate London on something it always had. We are probably in for another re-run of ‘the EU is being unfair’, ‘we’re only asking for a Canada-style deal’. It isn’t.”

I already have a new blue passport & living in Thailand couldn't care less / won't expect to be any slower passing through any european border than it is when entering LoS; especially when this covid lark is lifted.

You don't know yet that you will probably need a visa + proof of income of the last year  + health insurance + booked accommodation for the duration of your stay including proof of payment ?

You did not read  my point in it ? ….. not the fish for me.... but the vetoes I like to have now  , would like to see Boris handle his  "Austalian " deal 😂

In the eyes of many, brexit will have been a success when fish and chips are back to 50p.

On the matter of signing a treaty with party being a know liar, I found some more info.

So beside fish and level playing field there is this  third topic blocking a possible deal, it's called "Governance" 

 

here is a the brexiter newspaper "the Torygraph" summary https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics...iations-going/

Governance

Where they started

The EU wanted the deals on fishing, trade, foreign policy and security cooperation covered by a single agreement and enforcement system. Future agreements could be plugged into this umbrella agreement and punitive measures could be taken across sectors if necessary. 

 

Britain wanted a series of separate agreements with their own dispute resolution mechanisms and no cross-cutting. It said foreign policy cooperation didn’t need a new agreement. 

 

Where they are going

The UK's Internal Market Bill, which breaks international law, has stiffened the EU’s resolve to secure a tough enforcement system.  

Negotiations are expected to be difficult and detailed. The UK has warmed to the umbrella treaty but still wants fishing to be separate. 

Britain has signalled a robust governance system is also in its interest, suggesting a deal could be closer.

You obviously never bothered to read the link, dated March 2016, and not the first time he spoke on the matter.

Just about the time the Brexit debates were going on... Or would you care to identify his previous speeches.

take on the same matter of entering an international treaty with a lying party, by the Guardian

Finally, there is the matter of governance, which is as important as it is technical. The EU says it needs a system where binding decisions can be swiftly made as to whether either party has breached the comprehensive free trade agreement. And there needs to be the power to hit the other side with a sanction in a part of the economy where it will hurt.

 

For the UK, this feels all too close to being an association agreement, the likes of which may be more suitable for a country seeking to be enveloped into the EU’s sphere rather than pushing away from it. A breach on issues of goods should be dealt with by a sanction within that chapter of the deal.
