Don't worry Boris:

• We didn't believe you yesterday, when you painted the EU as big meanies trying to subjugate us.
• We don't believe you today, when you claim to have won a victory against all odds.
• We won't believe you tomorrow, when you try to spin what is still an unnecessarily-hard Brexit as sunlit uplands.

But any deal is better than the catastrophe of no deal.

Boris obeyed the will of the people. He got us out and looks like he's got a trade deal. Unfortunately whatever he achieves, there will always be small minded people on here who can only think one way: "He's a Tory and he's wealthy so I hate him, therefore his policies/ actions must be wrong". The politics of envy never goes away.

A no deal WTO exit from the EU, i.e. what Johnson deceitfully calls an “Australian deal”, would be extremely bad for this country. Although Johnson will doubtless trumpet the deal as a triumph, closer inspection will likely reveal a BRINO deal; that is an agreement where we have to significantly obey EU trade laws, but with zero say in those trade rules. So the net end result is less sovereignty

I have to bring a bite of reality to whatever deal has been reached, it will not be as promised, better than we have now (2016 referendum), only when the people see what it really means to their spending pockets will we know if its a good deal or not.

Finally we can see that to Boris this was a game of winners and losers
the cold reality is we are all losers, on the amount of cash spent so far

If you mean the MAJORITY of UK citizens who voted to be free of the EU’s controlling shackles and the power play of the Franco-German cartel that actually controls it and wants to enfeeble us, YOUR WRONG!

Let look at the history of Brexiteer talking points:

• Easiest deal in history
• They need us more than we need them
• German carmakers will step in
• The EU is communist
• The EU is fascist
• The EU is neoliberal
• The EU will collapse any day now

All nonsense. And yet they try to claim it is the other side that has somehow been proved wrong

I suspect that it will be a combination of

Disappointment - from some who voted Leave and would have preferred No Deal, and from those who voted Remain and never wanted to leave

Anger - from some Leavers for whom nothing short of complete scission is acceptable

Few will be happy at the overall outcome

Couldn’t agree more, and that’s speaking as an avid remainer. You can’t just agree with democracy when it goes your way. It’s now up to us all to stop negative sniping and work to make the most of the opportunities leaving the EU offers.

What changes does ending FOM mean to a citizen of the UK and a citizen of an EU country?
The UK citizen is now no longer free to move to 30 countries (EU excluding Ireland/EEA/Switzerland).
The EU citizen is now no longer free to move to 1 country (unless he is Irish or moves to UK via Ireland).

This is a good trade off for the UK citizen?

- He’s heard that BoJo has been underwater during the talks

- He wants to make sexual impropriety allegations and it’s a dead cert he can’t be sued if he makes them against Tories

This is just a starting point, the UK will need to decide if to move closer to the EU or move further away over time. Trade negotiations never end as regulations change over time - look at Norway and Switzerland.

All the No Deal talk was always nonsense spouted by either those grandstanding or those from ignorance. Anyway, this won't be the last we hear of this.

Yes - arguably financial services have been the key source of income to the UK. The EU may not receive the UK contribution but that loss is far outweighed by the profits the EU will make from financial services providers relocating into the EU. Presumably Mr Farage may be one of these.

Good to hear it sounds like they’ve reached an agreement. However good or bad aspects of this are, opinion should be voiced for the politicians responsible, who are supposed to act in our interests.

We should not be blaming or gloating others about whatever is good/bad about this deal and the whole Brexit issue, where a divided society driven by this is in nobody’s interests.

Love the sentiment , however I fear that the divide is likely to get more vitriolic.
Boris will have backed down in the eyes of many, and the deal is far worse than membership. So neither side will be happy, although many will be relieved that we wont be facing a no deal disaster.
This was an inevitable brino that takes more sovereignty than we gained
We do have an open door to re entry though.

The one thing the EU needs to do is pragmatically look at its fisheries policy to make it sustainable. At the moment it's all about how much of which type of fish can be caught in minute detail and finding new areas to overfish but it hasn't worked for decades. They need a hard look at capacity. Small boats for jobs or large factory ships for money but not both.

Nigella - I am not sure how you would validate that. Not all "Bankers" (a very generic term) would agree. I know quite a few "Bankers" paid through payroll, as employees, who pay their taxes and NI contributions. I think you might be thinking about a very, very, very small minority of people.

Thank goodness the R in ERG stands for Research. Doubtless their keen analytical minds will pouring over the thousands of pages of the trade deal in the few days Johnson has given them to scrutinize it. This must me what taking back control feels like. And, if we don't like it, we can vote him out, in four years time, if we happen to live in one of the few marginal constituencies that matter.

Firstly, many people voted Leave for reasons of "Sovereignty" accepting that even if we were slightly worse off, it would be worth it (I disagreed with that position and voted Remain but Remain lost). Secondly, don't perpetuate the utter nonsense that leaving or even no deal would have resulted in no jobs and no food on tables. That's just as intellectually dishonest as claiming £350m for NHS.

We need tariffs to protect and regrow those lost jobs. And farmers free of EU quotas, rules and cheap factory farmed imports to grow the food we currently umport
