.@pmdfoster: The operationalisation of the Protocol is going to cut into, and raise up, issues of devolution.

.@pmdfoster: The biggest fear I have is that the govt seemed locked on confrontation. It's doing things which are politically delicate at great speed and haste.

.@pmdfoster: The danger is the govt will end up repenting for not taking a more consensual approach.

This stuff would be tough at the best of times, but when you have the SNP and the Tories in diametrically opposing camps, it's clearly going to be very difficult.

.@simonjhix: "In the medium term, Brexit is a challenge to the EU. There will be a UK model of exit."

"At some point, the UK model will seem quite attractive, which could be politically very difficult for the EU."
.@HelenHet20: "The EU's reaction to #Brexit was primarily defensive, but there was an opportunity to face the euro-ins and euro-outs question head on."

"Instead, it was seen as a potential long-term threat to the EU's credibility."

Yesterday we released a NEW report #WhatWouldNoDealMean.

And, you've guessed it, this report is the subject of today's #ThursdayThread. 🧵…
.@BorisJohnson has said that no deal with the EU would be a “good outcome” for the UK.

This report highlights what it would mean in terms of trade, fisheries, connectivity, the impact on citizens, Northern Ireland, economics, security, foreign policy, politics and more.
On #trade, the two sides would revert to #WTO rules.

We’re talking tariffs, customs checks, and regulatory checks. In other words, increased hassle, increased time and increased costs for businesses trading with the EU.

@CSBarnard24 explains.

Our BRAND NEW report on what no deal would mean is out today

Our experts are giving a briefing on the report this morning...

. @jillongovt: "No deal now is not the same as last year because the financial settlement, citizens' rights and Northern Ireland were dealt with in the Withdrawal Agreement."

. @jillongovt: "There could be extensive disruption at the UK-EU border."

"Lots of #Brexit officials were redeployed to #Covid_19 and some things are running late."
