  • This so-called golf club argument is vigorously contested by most other EU governments, who insist all financial obligations must be met before they will agree to any future trade deal.

  • I prefer the UK negotiator, David Davis, not posting nonsense on Twitter, not denigrating the EU at every press conference, not leaking titbits for the media to twist.
  • No trade or customs deal then, all UK and EU nationals are mutually kicked out, Northern Ireland border becomes a customs border, and other nations are reluctant to sign major treaties with the UK.
