    It's a no-deal

    Gloomy looking ministers on both sides. It seems preparations are being made for talks to resume in the new-year.

    It's all the fault of remainers, business not getting ready etc etc

    What's the point of resuming in the new year? Would that mean we resort to WTO trade terms from Jan 2021 then switch to something else based on a deal? That surely would be chaos?

    I can't see what concessions either side are going to make now to suit both parties.

      I think it will be exactly that. the time needed to get a deal approved is about 10 years. I think they will start from almost scratch to come some kind of Canada deal.

          Talks not progressing

          It's pointless, they might as well give "no deal" a go. What the UK needs to do is put everyone on a fish diet, and press-gang all the ex workers in the car industry into a new revamped fishing fleet. Who needs tomatoes.

            As per this:

            https://ukandeu.ac.uk/wp-content/upl...Long-Guide.pdf

            "Trading only on WTO terms is the default position, but in fact no country does it. Although many trade
            barriers have been lowered through the WTO, all countries seek even less friction. All 164 WTO members
            have better access to at least one market either through a free trade agreement or through duty-free
            preferences for developing countries. Most countries have several deals, even if they do not all have one
            with the EU or the US."

            Also you need to negotiate commitments and tariff quotas with loads of countries and I'm guessing none of this has been done, so I'm not sure how these "automatic" WTO terms are meant to apply. It's a massive lie created by Brexit gammons to have a "back-up plan".

              No-deal + post-Xmas lockdown.

              Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

                    The wrong type of fish though. There will have to be octopus and chips shops.
