Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday claimed Brussels had “abandoned the idea of a free trade deal”.
And the UK’s chief negotiator, Lord Frost, told Mr Barnier not to bother travelling to London on Monday – as he had intended – as there was “no basis” on which to continue negotiations.
Business hates uncertainty.
Do any of y’all have a reliable gauge of U.K. sentiment? I don’t trust their polls any more than our polls. But my hunch is that support for Brexit, even without a deal, is likely to be a little higher now than two years ago, after two more years of Euro-intransigence.
What I am hoping is that Boris can have a beautiful new trade deal inked with a freshly victorious Trump by Thanksgiving.
