Great post Brexit deal done with Japan. Biggest deal done so far. Looks to be quite a decent deal too

It's basically the same deal we had when we were members of the EU except it's got a chapter on digital trade which I am sure the EU-Japan deal will also have shortly.

Hardly a massive achievement.

According to BBC it's very similar to the EU-Japan deal so we would have had it anyway and it's not a replacement for any of the lost GBP from leaving the EU.

It's like signing a player we had on loan the season before. Good but we've not actually improved the squad.

A phenomenal 0.07% boost to the UK's GDP.


And it's basically the deal we had via the EU.


Spoiler alert - we aren't going to get any deals better than that we had via the EU.

Totally agree. Although given that our starting position was going to be zero, it is good news.

Shouldn't be necessary, but that's another issue...

If you're being generous to Brexiteers, the EU didn't have an economic partnership agreement with Japan when we voted to leave, it's only been agreed since then, in 2018 at which point it became the largest trade deal ever negotiated between the EU and another nation.

But yes, it's nothing incremental from the position we left.

'' The new deal largely replicates the existing EU-Japan deal, but has an extra chapter on digital trade and lacks the quotas for agricultural exports such as cheese that Brussels wrested from Tokyo during years of talks.

Instead, the deal allows the UK to use any agricultural quotas left over by the EU. British officials are confident there will be enough space in the quotas to maintain and increase the UK’s food exports to Japan.'' FT today
"

So the UK is left picking up the scraps left after the EU has had first dibs.

And all the cost of the negotiations has amounted to, is the UK being worse off.... there's a surprise

So basically we cut and paste the contents of that deal which the EU were negotiating while we were in the EU and claimed it as all our own work?

I don't know, some of the responses seem to be pretty well informed on the details.

What do you think of it?

Probably.

I've spent the past 2 weeks working on Brexit planning in my job. The whole thing is a complete fecking disaster. We all knew this would happen of course.

Lol. Check out the bitterness of some of the posters on this topic. People who actually haven't moved on with their lives in 4 years.

I think it's a good deal with many more to come :)

The problem is should the EU/Japan choose to vary and detail in the future does the EK follow.... if so it is merely being a 'rule taker'

as it is now, by using current EU schedules

I expect more of this will come out in due course

Pointing out facts is bitterness?

I don't see any bitterness. Just people saying it's a rollover deal, so essentially nothing has changed.

I hope many more do come, as we'll need to replace what we're losing.

Which part of this deal excites you, and what are you expecting exactly in the way of these deals to come?

How does this improve our lot exactly, and equally how does it make up for the money lost so far?

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.
