Brexit just doesn't get much coverage here in the colonies lately. I just wonder how things are proceeding.

Negotiations are stalled. The UK is happy with a no deal so aren't really trying. There are rumours in the right wing media that the UK's hard line is just about to trigger a raft of unilateral concessions from the EU. Then again, they've been saying the same thing all along.

The only definitive statement from the UK government is that the transition period will not be extended under any circumstances.

As I recall one of the first things this government did when it was returned with a decent majority was remove the requirement to report progress regularly to Parliament.

Great approach by the UK. Treat our future trading partners as adversaries, be stubborn and arrogant, time limit the negotiations in the middle of a pandemic. I just wonder at what point soon Barnier will say just do one.

That's exactly what the UK government wants. That way they can have the no-deal the architects of Brexit want but can blame all negative consequences on Barnier's intransigence. :mad:

Isn't that exactly what people were being called paranoid or scaremongers for predicting over the last three years? Project Fear indeed.
