BREXIT SOLVED: UK lawyer offers brilliant solution which could fix crisis talks in days
In no other area of the so-called level playing field did Brussels’ opening position overreach so ridiculously. Indeed, the EU’s position was so extreme it breached the Withdrawal Agreement in my view – since the EU was supposed to be committed to using its best endeavours to respect the UK’s sovereignty. Seeking to impose your laws over another country is not respectful of that country’s sovereignty. It was a misjudgment which has poisoned the talks all year. The UK wants the same deal as Canada – which like almost all free trade deals – has no significant State Aid provisions. This is perfectly reasonable.
