One good thing about the deal (there had to be one, right?) is that the MPs have to go back to work now, during their Christmas holiday, to vote the thing through.

Hope some of it floats over here, expecting critical tea shortages in the near future.

Brexit is done!

All thousand+ pages of the "deal" have gone through the House of Commons and the House of Lords and been given Royal Assent by HM the Queen in the past couple of days. Transition ends in a few hours.
Parliament's role in scrutinising the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement is a farce | Hansard Society

Bye Europe! :byecry: And bye :ff:, because I fully expect Britain's internet to get cut off at random points over the next few months.

And for there to be skirmishes between fishing boats in the channel.

Exactly zero businesses are fully prepared for the actual deal because no one will have been able to read the final version in full.

On the plus side, now everything will be Bozo's fault. Nothing can be pushed to the future "when we have a deal".

On the minus side, and a 20-mile queue of lorries in Kent would not be sufficient to hold all the minuses, we'll have endless attempts to blame problems on the pandemic, and even attempts to present government failings as benefits of Brexit ... like this one:

Tampon tax: government axes VAT on sanitary products | Tax and spending | The Guardian
Great news! Long overdue! Already benefits from quitting!
Except, not really: it would have been quicker to campaign for this at the EU level - which Cameron's government had already started on over 4 years ago - and get it passed. Instead, they gave up after the brexit vote. Now we have a (pretty rare) example of the EU being weaker without Britain, such that the other 27 countries won't be getting this benefit any time soon.
