  • ℹ️ Description

The deal is done. After months of uncertainty, Britain and the European Union have struck an agreement on a post-Brexit trade deal. EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen spoke from Brussels and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a news conference from Downing Street in London. The last-ditch deal sealed with just eight days to go before the existing trade arrangements expire. The agreement should avert a chaotic New Year spilt. January 1st marks the end of the transition period for the UK leaving the EU.

"this country would remain ... geologically attached"

And the maddest thing is (and knowing the country) they’ll still be angry and unsatisfied about ‘the deal’ when they have no clue about it lol

The deal is that the geological attachment is unbroken 😜😜

I am so glad we are now out of the European union but I must remind people that I am still a European a British European and proud of it 👍

Both the reporters have no idea. Person in red is so clear and very well spoken. Reports should work some homework before coming to TV.

"geologically"? Well, i guess that technically, in a way, it's true, as England and France weren't divided by water during the ice age, when the sea level was much lower, but somehow I don't think that's what Johnson meant.

They have a deal. Great. Great that they have a deal. Do we get to know that the terms of that deal are? Seems to me that until we know what the deal was, actually commentary is moot.

It's just in the nick of time for all in the U.K., and those that trade with the E.U. Merry Christmas Brexit!

It is a shame we left but I understand and respect the reasons why. I am glad we can still be friends 🇬🇧.

Congratulation! A soft landing in trade relations is always a preferable outcome.
