    There's no deal yet Stevlin, on anything. "Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed."

    I think you'll find the 2020 transition deal is already agreed .....the EU are making noises that it could be extended further.........what we have attempted to make conditional upon a trade deal being agreed is that ridiculous £39m 'settlement' sum......

    Tell you what though Barry...the transition period was at the UK's request.......and it isn't in the interests of the EU to have that period reduced.....if anything, because of May and Hammond , (and Barnier of course) - neither side will ask for it be reduced!! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-43456502

    It is a transition to a deal - if there is no deal there is nothing to transition to.

    A “no deal” Brexit does what it says on the tin. It means the UK and the EU would be unable to reach a withdrawal agreement. If no agreement can be made, it means there would be no 21-month transition period, which Theresa May is currently proposing.

    Barry's correct in that if a withdrawal agreement can't be reached then there will be no transition. But the latest rumblings I've heard is the whole of the UK will stay in a customs union through the transition period and NI will also stay in the single market. Meaning some for of border checks down the Irish sea. The DUP won't agree to that so that gives a problem to T.May. Parliament might go for that but without labour support, or at least a number of labour MP's then this won't fly.

    SO a hard brexit would still be the stronger betting option.

    The risk-taker in me dares to think that the a very real prospect of a looming hard Brexit provides the best hope of Britain remaining in the EU.

    RAAB has already conceded that there could be a 'leaving bill', irrespective of a deal or not - ( albeit I cannot see how in view of our well above average contributions)......and the budget runs out in either 20 or 21 - perhaps it should be us asking for a rebate!! https://www.politico.eu/article/brex...a-brexit-bill/

    £39 billion is "only" around £600 for every man woman and child in the country. Now that would make an impact on the NHS!
