The uk position is part of the directives for the negotiation disclosed this morning by Downing Street, following an announcement similar to the part of the Eu in the past days, in view of the official start of the negotiation scheduled for Monday. It is not entirely surprising that Johnson adopt a line intransigent at the beginning of the negotiations. But Brussels has reported more rumors that a deal appears to be "difficult" given the divergence of objectives: London wants to avoid duties on the import-export and the largest possible access to Europe for financial services of the City, but is not willing to ensure compliance with the european standards on a variety of procedures and areas.
once Again, in substance, purports to have "the barrel full and the wife drunk", according to a phrase mentioned multiple times by the same british prime minister. To which the prospect of a "no deal", although judged to be economically disastrous for both parties, is to take more seriously into consideration.
"The government will work with the maximum commitment to reach an agreement," state the guidelines of Downing Street. "However, if it will not be possible to negotiate a satisfactory result, trade relations with the Eu will be based on the agreement of the output of the 2019 and will be similar to those of Australia". The agreement of the output of 2019 is negotiated by Boris Johnson and approved by the british parliament in December, after the elections stravinte from the conservative leader.
As the reports "similar to those of Australia", it is a euphemism for not to define them as a "no deal": in fact, as the leaders of the Eu have repeatedly pointed out, at the moment Australia does not have any type of trade agreement with the European Union, even if she wants to start a negotiation about it.
Boris Johnson indicates June as the date to make a decision, because if by then there will be prospects of an agreement will still need a few more months for the ratification by all the parliaments. The british premier is confident that, in this case, an agreement can be signed "in September".
But it also says ready to a divorce without the agreements, the output with the "no deal", which probably would turn the Uk into a kind of Singapore-on-Sleeve, a kind of tax haven ultraliberista in front of the coasts of the continent. At a very high price for british industry and for its financial services, to say nothing of the possible consequences of policies on Scotland and Northern Ireland, the two regions contrary to the Brexit who yearn for independence.
in Short, as in an echo of Groundhog Day, the Groundhog Day, the movie in which the protagonist is forced to relive endlessly the same day, back to glimpse the dilemma brexitiano of the last three and a half years: London and Brussels will be able to find at the last minute a compromise or you will leave in the worst possible terms? In the space of four months, we will know the true face of Boris Johnson.
