EU-UK Trade Discussions 2020

February 5th, 2020, 7:38 pm

What is important for both sides? Will there be enough time?

More content for a change, less rants. Gracias.

I think fisheries is smoked screens, a red herring and a cod. To whom will UK sell its fish to in the event of oversupply?

And what about chlorinated (oops, I mean chlorine-washed) chicken?

If there's oversupply, we can always fish less. That's what being in control means.

I would love to see the UK impose a five years' moratorium on any fishing in its coastal waters. Give the fisheries time to recover.

Something fishy here. Will you pay the fishermen to stay at home?
Will there be fish export to EU??

Won't that be a cod?

Check the demographiics; @ISayMoo take note
The UK consumes about 115,000 tonnes of cod each year. Only 15,000 tonnes comes from the North Sea, with the rest imported mainly from the fertile grounds in the Barents Sea and around Norway and Iceland. But the species is of huge symbolic importance to the UK fishing industry, which employs about 24,000 people – more than half of them working in Scotland.

But it's more symbolic than economic.

However, Mr Coveney believes Mr Johnson wants to exit transition period at the end of this year, and so the EU will secure either a limited trade deal with the UK, or the talks will collapse and trade will be conducted on World Trade Organisation rules.

Apropos the thread title - do we expect there to be any trade talks, or were they another victim of the Coronavirus?

No more red lines; the only one is in people's minds (in the photo) and has measure zero. It is a Fata Morgana.

Each side accuses the other of being unreasonable. The EU is right that the Johnson government has been backsliding on commitments made in the withdrawal agreement, behaviour that has deepened their pre-existing suspicions of a British prime minister who caused enduring offence by comparing the EU to Nazi prison guards. The British government is right that some of the EU’s demands, especially on fisheries and state aid, are too aggressive. 

The rawest complaint from London is that the EU is treating Britain as a supplicant rather than an “equal” sovereign state. The EU retorts that the Johnson government is not, as it claims to be, seeking a free trade agreement, but demanding the right to cherry-pick privileged access to the single market.

Rudd, a former chair of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, noted that, while Australia, Canada and New Zealand would remain supportive of a post-Brexit UK, their combined population of about 65 million people does not “come within a bull’s roar of Britain’s adjacent market of 450 million Europeans”.

Of the prospect of a free trade deal with Delhi, he writes: “As for India, good luck!”

In the 4 years since the referendum, the EU has concluded trade deals with Japan, Canada, the MERCOSUR block, Singapore, Mexico and Vietnam.
