Brexit … Boris’ Oven Ready Deal Emerges Half-Baked #March 2021

Not surprisingly both the UK government and its EU counterparts proclaimed a victory for ‘fairness’ in their eventual agreement over the terms of Brexit. Supportive elements in the British press lionised Boris Johnson for his approach in the face of EU hardlining, seeming to have forgotten the process was one imposed by the UK. It is poor diplomacy to crow too loudly over any ‘wins’ especially if one party only wants the other to discover its losses as relations unfold through time.
