Brexit talks could go into their crucial "tunnel" phase as early as Monday, officials believe – in latest sign a trade deal is moving within reach.

Michel Barnier and his team arrived in London on Thursday evening by train and have been locked in intensive talks with their UK counterparts since Friday.

Negotiators are aiming to strike a last-minute free trade agreement to avoid a no-deal Brexit that would inflict tariffs on goods and chaos at ports when Britain leaves the single market at the end of the year.

In an early sign that both sides are now taking proceedings seriously, the two teams have informally agreed to stand down their media operations over the weekend's discussions.
I reckon there will be a trade deal agreed by the end of the month or start of next month. Pretty good negotiation tactics by Boris, Lord Frost and the excellent lawyers from the UK team.
Anyone willing to bet there will be a no deal?

At the start we were told by EU lover types that EU had all the cards in the negotiations and UK would just cave in but so far what we've seen is both sides making compromises. EU haven't been able to get everything they wanted.
If it was a small country like Ireland, Netherlands, etc negotiating with them, I have no doubt that EU would have bullied them to accept all their demands.
It will be bare bones Trance. UK wont get unfettered access to single market, there will still be delays in ports.

UK will win on fishing, EU will get an independent arbitrator on state aid which is good for EU.
I disagree. It will cover most things. Of course the access won't be the same and there will be some delays because we won't be in customs union but I think the disruptions will be minimal over time if the sort of FTA UK want is agreed.

You wont be in a customs union, single market and wont have freedom of movement. Even with a FTA agreement there will be delays in ports. The FTA may reduce tariffs but not all the other customs checks like entry/exit declarations. If you think things will carry on as normal you're living in cloud cukoo land

Certainly looking much more promising - good news for both sides if some sort of deal can be agreed.

Fingers crossed.

Agreed, but that is the whole point of leaving. You can't leave a club but retain all the benefits. Likewise the members of a club can't expect a former member to remain bound by all the rules.

So the EU-Japan deal contains 25 Japanese agrifood tariff-rate quotas; the UK-Japan deal contains 10, in which Japanese importers can retrospectively claim tariff-relief for food imports from UK, so long as EU imports haven't maxed-out their respective quotas.
Just got this from Twitter.

Interesting. I'm sure there is more to it than that but if the EU max out their quotas to Japan, that could restrict UK quotas to Japan in their trade deal. Wow. I'm just reading verbatim from a comment on Twitter

Another comment on that same twitter thread
Sorry, are you saying we have agreed to maintain EU quotas?

Why on earth would we agree to this?

Surely it has to be bare bones at this stage? If they've actually nailed down enough detail to get something more impactful in place why on earth are they keeping what that is a secret with all the problems in not having that communicated?

Holding "all the cards" was the Brexitist pledge. Michael Gove is probably a hero of yours. At least give him the credit. :roll:

It's quite funny how the Irish posters keep harking back to the days of the Empire. We really don't give it a 2nd thought. Mention the Empire to most of us and we'd think you were referring to Star Wars..........
It's still deep in the English psyche. Where else do those massive feelings of superiority and entitlement come from?
That's just you're inferiority complexes distorting your view of us.
Not sure about that. I have an English brother in law and his parents are cùnts . If you want to know what they asked my parents on their visit over here one evening I'll tell you. Nigel Lawson has on record said the Irish need to know their place. Posters on here like Merry have even said that the English feel better than other nations by birthright. English exceptionalism has been well documented.
:?

and? what's wrong with that?

On the subject of English scumminess, who can forget Priti's exhortation to use the threat of food shortages to force Ireland to relinquish its backstop guarantees.

As in other spheres of life, converts like her, and Trance for that matter, are prone to zealotry.

Ehhh ok then. This was always a wait and see exercise by both parties. This was known 6 months ago it all hinged on the election. All the insider stuff that Biden doesn't like Brexiteerism is laughable- the dogs in the streets know he doesn't like Johnson so it all hangs on matters outside your control. Trump gets elected and there is a chance we'll you are in the driving seat. He doesn't and you are fücked. I am also aware bimbo will still try and sell it as a win as he is on the troll 24/7

Not strictly Brexit related but yet another u-turn from the UK govt regarding immigration.

I'm not sure why you think it's so important? We're not going to allow the EU to stop British goods going to NI - whoever is in the white house. We're not going to get a US deal without years of negotitions, and the success or failure of Brexit isn't dependent on one.

Not really, the EU chief negotiator did use the UK third party country listing status as a food exporter, as a threat. Otherwise why did he mention it?

Shitty Priti made an actual threat the crazy bitch. Barnier was referring to legal issues that could arise if Britain could not be listed as a 3rd country for food imports to the EU single market (which NI will still be part of after Dec 31st). Food from UK couldn’t be imported to any country in the EU single market due to the UK not providing the details on them being listed as 3rd country for food imports.

How about read about it from a proper legitimate news source.
https://www.google.ie/amp/s/amp.rte.ie/amp/1165612/
The working paper, seen by RTÉ News, states: "Michel Barnier clearly stated that the EU is not refusing to list the UK as a third country for food imports.

"To be listed, the EU needs to know in full what a country's rules are, including for imports. This assessment is an objective process and the same for all countries.

"If the future UK rules on food imports fulfill all applicable conditions, then the European Union would proceed with the listing of the United Kingdom as a third country for these purposes as of 1 January 2021.

"However, up to now, we do not have full clarity from the UK government regarding its future regime, in particular for imports into the UK."
Then read your shit lying truth twisting media.

Its a clear threat from Barnier. Which I don't have a problem with, by the way, he's only doing his job.

Hold on, I haven’t read your article yet, but before I do I want to let you know the BBC is controlled by the Tory government. BBC hasn’t a patch on RTE when it comes to truth and integrity.
