“We are... only replicating the agreements that we have as a member of the EU”
Let’s see where we are today:
The UK needs 40 of these roll-over agreements
Those 40 agreements cover just 12% of UK trade
It has 4
The Faroe Islands
Eastern and Southern Africa
That leaves 36 to go.
And, by Fox’s on admission, those 36 are refusing continuity agreements. The UK wants nothing new, nothing extra, just the status quo.
And he cannot achieve it.
