Covid was a short term impact, unfortunately brexit will have a far longer and more permanent negative effect. I am speaking for my business but there are no positives, its just damage limitation, there is not a single advantage to our trade from leaving the EU. Don't fall for the nonsense the BBC keeps printing about tariff free trade, its just not true, its just less tariffs, its going to hurt!

Brexit is only just beginning. So far all we have done is to agree the trade deal necessary to support the Good Friday agreement. Over the coming decades we'll need to work out how to do business with the EU.

I think you've missed the point Trev, it's no coincidence that Brexit was a project of the far right, they ALWAYS meant more rights for THEM to act in an authoritarian manner.

You don’t understand the point of Mr Johnson. His aim is purely to support his chums, cronies and hangers-on in their quests to make ever more money and launder it into tax havens and shady deals. They don’t even bother to conceal their activities in brown paper envelopes as back in the days of Hamilton - they know their government will always protect them from the people.

'Leavers are getting on with things'?

I don't call sitting on the steps of your local Wetherspoons sobbing because they aren't open 'getting on with things', but 'chacun à son goût' as they say in the civilised world.

The UK joined the EEC in 1973. In the same football season Carlisle Utd were promoted to the 1st Division. Lets hope that the UK is able to do better than Carlisle Utd were when trying to play with 'the big boys'. In fairness it was the same season as Man Utd were relegated to the 2nd Division and look where they are now. Just need to find an Alex Ferguson equivalent for today.

Half truths. Ok, it wasn't a week but it was £350m.

It's true. The biggest problem pro-unionists have now whenever they try to counter an argument against Scot separatists is that they supported the same argument during Brexit. So not only do they fail, they lose face as massive hypocrites.

Currently the best argument they have is Scotland's economic prospects. But even then Brexiteers kept telling us that freedom was more important than money...

Can you imagine the horrendous negotiations on Scexit! It would be more of a divorce than Brexit. And the rest of the U.K. could just adopt the EU line on protecting the single U.K. market / level playing field, customers checks etc etc. Luckily s had a once in a generation vote already!

Does Johnson realise that his chosen image - the backdrop of huge massed flags, moronic slogans, and arms waving frenetically - resembles more a fascist dicatator from the 1930s - if a very scruffy one - than the Prime Minister of a modern democratic state?

I wonder if 2021 will see more people see Johnson for what he is. A corrupt serial liar. The man who said the country should never leave the single market, the man who still lies about frictionless trade, the man who lied about Turkey joining the EU, lied about £350 mill a week, lied about Erasmus being ditched . I honestly pity those who can't see through him, Jesus,, how much proof do you need.

Despite the deal, the increase in paperwork and bureaucracy is huge for some businesses. I lead a Supply Chain team and we will announce job losses in the New Year as we move our operations to the EU. That is a direct result of Brexit as it makes us less competitive being in the UK. Call us Remoaners, the reality is more job losses. Hope the job losses are worth it.

He just wants to live in France as a native rather than an immigrant on a visa. Visa immigrants are treated like trash, and only English exceptionalism seems to prevent most Brexiteers from realising they'll be treated the same over there.

What worried me more are high profile Brexiteers moving their bank accounts and companies out of the UK on the quiet.
