Brexit; If all else fails......

Friday 8th June 2018

The UK Government has published a paper on the "backstop" position should the UK/EU not agree a new relationship by the time the UK leaves the EU - this backstop, which is time limited to the end of 2021, effectively keeps the UK operationally within the Customs Union, but allows for the negotiation and agreement of separate trade deals, but crucially, without the ability to enact them if they do not mirror EU trade agreements.

So, if agreed, this will keep the UK in the Customs Union...from the outside.
