    UK chief negotiator David Frost said there were "considerable gaps" in the most difficult areas, but a deal could still be reached in September.

    His EU counterpart Michel Barnier said both sides were still "far away" and time was running out for negotiations.

    It's not just the economy. Remember that they plan to install an internal customs border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. They actually plan to split their country in two.

    It’s just a subtle to plan keep the island of GB together like the (future) island of Ireland...

    Experts say that finding a way of adjudicating over future disputes between the bloc and the UK without some role for the ECJ is almost impossible and point out that it will be involved in disputes over the Northern Ireland protocol and citizens’ rights.

    Northern Ireland is to be left out of the UK’s green car emission restrictions from 1 January, resulting in “Great Britain-only” regulations for carmakers. A quirk in the regulations means that cars sold in Northern Ireland will count as EU sales for strict new carbon dioxide emission limits.

    We'll need to wait for the regime's proposed legislation but it would appear that the 'UK internal market' will be, as always seemed likely, the end of meaningful devolution in the UK of GB∋

    This is a very strange thing for avowed Unionists to do. Devolution is what has allowed the UK of GB&NI to exist, right from its inception in 1921.

    It is on the other hand exactly what a colonial administration would do with a territory it had conquered. The pattern was always the same: set the natives against each other (Hutu versus Tutsi etc) and pretend to play referee in that conflict while extracting all wealth to another place.
