The United Kingdom agreed at the last minute with the European Union on exit measures

The memory was gone, and the idea came, as the old saying goes, negotiators between England and the European Union ignored the noise of exchanged media statements and succeeded in drafting an extensive legal document that defines the future of relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union.The United Kingdom was adamant during the negotiations that it be treated as a sovereign equal to the European Union and that its independence is respected. Especially when it comes to fishing rights - it is one of the issues to be resolved. Which will affect other European countries, such as the Netherlands, for example.

There were two arguments against this saying that the United Kingdom insists on - first: that the trade agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom is designed to establish interdependence rather than as an exercise in asserting independence.
Second: the European Union is simply a big power in an economic sense compared to the United Kingdom. This meant that Brussels was confident that it could absorb the losses of the UK secession without a deal better than the UK. By refusing to extend the transition period despite the pandemic, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has assured that both parties face the same time pressure. But they did not face the same level of risk if no agreement was reached.

A nearly equal deal between the European Union and the United Kingdom at the last minute:
Johnson's negotiator, David Prost liked to argue that the UK only wanted a standard free trade agreement like the one between Canada and the European Union. The UK was asking for additional benefits, such as mutual recognition of conformity assessment of goods and mutual recognition of professional qualifications. But it seems that the European Union did not agree with that argument on the part of the United Kingdom.
Brussels was also adamant that the deal required legal guarantees for the UK to adhere to single market standards in terms of environmental standards or employment rights. Johnson agreed in principle to the idea of equal opportunity in the Political Declaration accompanying the 2019 Withdrawal Agreement obtained by Parliament. He then tried at a later time in the negotiations, but in the end, he abided by the previous commitment. The agreement stipulates that the difference from EU standards may lead to restricting access to the single market.


- At a conference Johnson tried to reassure "the English public and those in the fishing industry" that there would be a lot of their dinner plates, but the trade agreement talks about it means that ships based in the European Union during the next five and a half years will continue to enjoy great access. To British waters during the transitional period until the final agreement is reached.
- Of course, according to the agreement, the freedom of movement of people has ended while the goods will face customs and regulatory controls. Therefore, transport chaos around the port in Dover continues to face severe difficulties after January 1, as exporters could not obtain the appropriate papers to cross the canal because they simply do not know how to do this. EU-based carriers choose to be careful and in the short term to avoid the risk of their trucks crashing in the UK. The UK will also leave the Erasmus Higher Education Exchange Program which will be a blow to many students -
What remains unclear from the deal is the future of the UK's main export industry: financial services. Outside the single market where the City of London relies on the European Union to grant permission to serve customers residing in the European Union and sell them banking, accounting, and related legal products. This equation is constantly being revised depending on the UK's approach to financial regulation and data protection, and this places the sector in more complex problems than the manufacturing industry.
How is the UK government marketing the deal:


It was agreed, but marketing to the English people is the difficult aspect. Prime Minister Bruce Johnson will attempt to claim that he has not yielded to EU requirements and will play the role of the sovereignty angle by highlighting the ability to avoid breaking into EU law.
Hit-and-run and blame things will often be more interesting. The deal requires a continuous dialogue with the European Union on matters that will affect the terms of the agreement, such as government support such as Switzerland, for example, and the Brexit agreement requires both sides to undergo a general review after four years to ensure that both sides fulfill their obligations stipulated in the trade agreement between Both sides will attack the hard-line EU skeptical Conservatives who have pressed for failure to agree on those commitments and may see them as a far-reaching concession.

On Friday morning 12/25/2020, the 27 European Union ambassadors met after the conclusion of a last-minute deal on Thursday, to discuss the trade agreement after Britain's exit from the European Union in Brussels, in the presence of the head of the European Commission working group for relations with the United Kingdom, Michel Barnier. To begin reviewing the new trade agreement of 1,246 pages to determine whether their countries can accept the terms and conditions after Brexit. The vetting process will be tedious in the coming days.
** There is a final note: The outgoing US President Donald Trump was encouraging the British Prime Minister to leave the European Union even without and pledging to present the United Kingdom a trade agreement with tremendous advantages to compensate the United Kingdom for leaving the European Union for many reasons, including Trump's hostile policies against the Union The European Union and NATO will now come to a new American administration that differs in its orientations from the Trump administration and will return to its alliances with the European Union. What will Bruce Johnson do !!!
