Abstract

The publication by government of 24 documents on 23 August, on what to do if there’s no Brexit deal [1] should read, this is what happens when the UK leaves the EU. It recognises at last that Brexit really does entail costs. A no deal Brexit is what Brexit really is; Brexit means leaving the European Union, lock, stock and barrel. And all the talk about a ‘soft Brexit’ is really diversionary, a pussy-footing about Brexit. ‘Soft Brexit’ should be referred to as ‘Post Brexit Trade Deal Negotiations’. But, can the publication of the Guides be seen as a tactic to spur the 27 EU members on to agree a trade deal with the UK? I think not, when we recall what the Chequers proposals consist of. [2]
