The UK has been tangled up with the EU for decades, resulting in multiple, complex layers of laws, agreements and protocols. There is just over a year and half left until the negotiating clock runs out and the UK exits the EU.
The Telegraph also reported that in October last year, Sir Andrew Cahn, who was once the head of the organisation 'UK Trade and Investment', said that a new deal take could take five years to work out.
On top of that, Germany’s elections in September could have an impact on the deal, depending on the make-up of the next government.
The two-year negotiating period plays to the EU’s advantage so surely it is better to secure a good deal, even if it takes a little bit longer to finalise, than end up with a bad deal for both parties?
Both remainers and Brexiteers must agree with that.
