As the latest round of talks on the future relationship finished in London yesterday, with Barnier tweeting there were still “significant divergences”, the EU released updated sectoral guidance to businesses on both sides of the Channel. The document is an ominous and grim portent of the new reality for many sectors and the “far reaching” changes that await us next year. It puts the blame for the coming shock squarely on the British government. “Negotiations so far have shown little progress” the EU says and adds that: “The choices made by the United Kingdom’s government on the future relationship and on not extending the transition period mean that these inevitable disruptions will occur as of 1 January 2021 and risk compounding the pressure that businesses are already under due to the COVID-19 outbreak.” The 35-page document goes on to explain that “these broad and far-reaching changes, will arise under any scenario [emphasis in the original], regardless of the outcome of negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom.”" The article lists the key things that will change as a consequence of exiting the EU. Students of the so-called "Project Fear campaign" will recognise the things we were warned about becoming the realities outlined in this document. https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/inf...ommunication_from_commission_to_inst_en_0.pdf rather than what the nation was told would happen by by the Leave campaign. Thankfully we now have have our precious blue passports, so it was worth it all.
