Thank God for that! Hope normal service resumes soon, sorting out more important matters at home - NHS, railways, housing, social care etc. etc.

What's not to like for Brussels? They sell goods and we sell services. The trade in goods continues and the trade in services moves over there. It's a win-win for Brussels. This was always inevitable. We made a decision that could only ever have been economically calamitous which put us over a barrel. They offer us a fudged deal on much worse terms. Great to have got control back, isn't it?

I can't see the goods-only customs arrangement being acceptable to the EU27, tbh. There are situations where goods and services are so inextricably linked that it's nigh on impossible to separate them, such as the purchase of a car being bound up with services like finance and servicing agreements.

I agree ACT. But we are between a rock and a hard place really. And it doesn't bode well if you are not rich, not big business and not a neoliberal politician who is obsessed with the destruction of our civic life and assets.(think Blair, Mandelson, Brown as well as centrist Tories.) It's unfortunate that the political champions of 'leave' are seemingly a cabal of chancers, Gove, Johnson, Leadsom, the disgraced Fox et al ,who are interested only in in protecting dodgy personal fortunes through deregulation.
Of course it's a stitch up and a cosy relationship with the Neo Llberal Brussel's men and women will ensure that we remain.
No one talks about alternatives beyond the set pieces that have been rolled out. There are of course interesting options for leaving that have never been discussed by main stream media and their establishment voices. It's a sad state of affairs.

After Brexit, just watch corporate tax rates plummet. Business is business and they will be flooding here. Thatchers crushing up of the inefficient and frankly garbage manufacturing sector was a master stroke. Britain is already a world leader in so many intellectual businesses. Anyone can mine coal or forge steel. Have you been to Canary Wharf?, have you seen the global pull of Britain even before Brexit happens. Anyone who truly thinks there will be mass exodus of business is as reliable as a Michael Foot budget. Britain will be a low tax, low regulation haven and we will be a truly global powerhouse again.

We are so beset with foreigners that our national pride and patriotism has been completed decimated and watered down. Imagine if this had happened during WW1 we would all be speaking German now. Pull your bl00dy fingers out. Make Britain great again

@@Tax Man. What May wants and what she will likely get are two very different things. A no deal Brexit is the only option. A clean break, and a blank canvas on which to create a brand new economy. Service sectors, not least financial, are loyal to their balance sheets not their governments. We open the doors to all and any business that will relocate here, except heavy manufacturing which recent history has shown, we are crap at. We can introduce our own freedom of movement laws which ensures the country keeps the economically valuable migrant labour we already have in the sectors that matter. For me its only ever been about taking Britain back from the expensive, overly beurocratic, utterly corrupt, federal Franco Germanic monster that is the EU.

Of course Brexit wasn't going to be allowed by our masters in the City and the banks (they told us to vote Remain in 2016 but we disobeyed them). That's the EU way. Though this time it looks like it's being done without us being told to 'Vote again and give the right answer this time' The French and the Dutch voted No to the 'European Constitution', which returned disguised as the Lisbon Treaty. The Irish voted No but were told to vote again.

Taxman, your musings are delusional. Were it possible for countries to just decide that they were going to be global superpowers without producing anything and without trade agreements that make them appealing to business and without paying for social and infrastructure needs then there would be no third world. Canary wharf was built to house financial services that were trading in the EU.

Ah, Mark. Canary Wharf was built to supply the Empire. The modern monstrosities are monuments to our ability to make £ from nothing. Kind regards.

Ill answer this, if i may?...
Frankly there's no issue to solve, Only deliberate attempts from self satisfied privileged, narrow minded intolerant planks....
"Simon Coveney" Our preferred solution is that we find a way of maintaining as close to the status quo as possible. We donít believe we can do that by simply using technology on the border. There needs to be quite a unique political solution agreed between Ireland, the UK and the EU that can allow the free movement of goods and services and people, and the normal environment that has been created in the border area on the island of Ireland, to continue.
No drama then, right? Only that, people like Annette Curtin-Twitcher will insist on making things up to more difficult than they should be.
