With negotiation starting to conclude in the coming weeks, many in Britain are wondering if a deal will be done on time.
In a recent poll by YouGov asking the public will a deal be done in time before the transition period is over, 28% do the people asked said yes, 53% said they don’t believe an agreement will be done.
In recent days things have started to get heated between EU member states as they fight for the best deal possible in EU-UK negotiations. Barnier has been going around the meeting heads of member states in the hope he can butter them up in lowering their red lines. Unfortunately, France and many others from the EU fishing nations have said that they will not be relaxing their redlines on fisheries, the EU fishing nations demand automatic access and same quotas as they have now.
It’s been hard to understand by some in the EU why Macron and his fellow national leaders continue this route especially when Britain is leaving the EU and becoming a sovereign island away from the claws of the EU.
Due to Macrons stubborn reluctance to move on these redlines, Yesterday the hierarchy in Brussels jumped over the heads of the EU fishing nations to push on for a deal with the UK. This has caused a significant rupture amongst certain nations as some are going to gain more than others from the agreement with Britain.
In the video above, Richard Tice said if a deal isn’t done by October, the UK needs to walk away and start to ready themselves for an exit without a deal. The big question to ask is will a deal be done on time? With all nations having to qualify the deal with their backing first anything could happen especially after the EU top dogs deciding to bypass those who have been pushing for access and same quotas in British waters after the transition period.
