Merkel isn’t happy, as Boris Johnson gives a personal reminder “The UK equally would be ready to leave the transition period on Australia terms”.

As the 6th round off negotiations kicked off yesterday, as the EU tries to find a deal, the UK states an FTA would be the only way forward to gain an agreement and not a deal where we remain in the orbit of the EU.

Last night during a phone call with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Boris Johnson set out Britains path ahead, saying an FTA would be preferable but “The UK equally would be ready to leave the transition period on Australia terms if an agreement could not, in the end, be reached.”

People on Britannia News Facebook page have been saying “Do not back down Boris, we want freedom”. This sentiment of getting out of the EU as quickly as possible so that we can start the rebuild of Great Britain is vital. We need to make sure that the end of the transition period means a fresh start for Britain going forward.

Last night there was a meal and a meeting between the two sides. The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said while last night’s talks were “informal”, discussions were likely to “cover everything from what the EU calls the level playing field through to governance structures”.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister underlined the UK’s commitment to working hard to find an early agreement out of the intensified talks process.

“He also noted that the UK equally would be ready to leave the transition period on Australia terms if an agreement could not, in the end, be reached.”

Australia’s trade agreement with the EU is a barebone deal, and most of the trade between the EU and Australia is carried out following trade organisation rules, through agreements that are in place on particular good.

The UK is still standing by its guns on making sure we do not remain in the grasp of the EU, leaving the transition period as a free country to push onto a bigger, brighter, future.
