“If one stitched together a temporary FTA - (for use) whilst the talks go on for something permanent - that would in principle, if it were a zero tariff FTA, be compliant with Article 24 of GATT“ Martin Howe QC

Excuse me if I'm confused !! But doesn't the so called deal cover a whole spectrum of issues. Trade is just one issue out of hundreds so why is the deal so dependent on trade. We need to look at all the issues as many are not in our interests. I'm confused

They’re talking in context of “no deal”. In that scenario, as long as an FTA is in the process of being negotiated, under Art24 of GATT, UK & EU can continue to trade on existing terms ie zero tariffs Such an FTA may take time to initiate, so a temp. FTA could be used in interim

Looks appealing but whats the chance of the EU agreeing to it? They want to make an example of the UK and punish us for leavi g their club. Passive aggressive and psychotic behaviour from the EU.

Yes, and they'll continue playing their games right up to the point it becomes obvious that we'll leave with no deal. Then reality will set in, as it already has with German car manufacturers & French agri producers. It's called negotiation. Many UK MPs don't seem to understand.

So, in line with what said on 11th December '18: We must intensify plans for trading on WTO terms and then negotiate a UK-EU trade deal on those sure foundations via

Nope, afraid not. The EU will not be well disposed to negotiate with a country who has just refused to pay it's agreed bill and has refused to guarantee peace in Northern Ireland.

This is a no brainer. The only reason why anyone would object to this, deal or no Deal, is because they wish to Remain.

You think that the EU after being stiffed for £39bn, and negotiated an agreement, will allow free access? You cannot make a unilateral FTA, the EU will not agree. It also neglects the lack of passage of the laws and SI necessary to replace the laws that disappear on Brexit day.
