Haliluy! A divine partnership agreement was reached between the European Union and the United Kingdom. On Christmas Eve, quite a symbol. The ten-month conversation followed with its theatricality, a dozen of its breakdowns and always overturns, with its flaws.
If the possibility of failure Always formed below the table, it is the dynamics of compromise that dominate the theater of negotiation. Today it is easy to say, but this happy epilogue was the only logical and justified result of this long saga started four years ago by a painful referendum. He won.
With a few die-hard Brixors ready to sacrifice the future of their country at the altar of their exceptions, everyone was convinced: exiting the United Kingdom without agreement would have been a disaster for the country.

The circumstances were greatly affected in the conversion of the obsolete British Prime Minister. The outbreak of Kovid-19, which he managed with the same dialectics as his negotiations with Brussels, weakened his leadership. The economy is sinking into an economic crisis that an exit without an EU agreement would have made it even more devastating.
The disarray that arose a few days ago around the port of Dover following the health blockade imposed by Europe gave a presentation as to what would happen on the island’s outer borders if no agreement was reached. Space for streamlining the traffic of heavy goods vehicles and cargo. The power of facts has been eliminated Dogmatics.
