PM Johnson will struggle to complete a trade deal with the EU by the end of the transition period – December 2020, Professor John Ryan, a senior partner at the organization Brexit Partners told RT.
Furthermore, Ryan claims that any aspirations of striking a number of big trade deals with the likes of Japan, China and the US is “fanciful.” He argues that those countries will wait and see what is happening between the UK and the EU before laying their cards on the table, suggesting that any quick deals may not be secured so easily.
Ryan believes the UK could be about to experience “years” of upset around Brexit-related matters.
However, Barrister Rebecca Butler disagrees with Ryan’s assessment, telling RT that there aren’t “major hurdles to an EU trade deal.” She hopes the huge majority Johnson has garnered at the general election will end the negative and “pessimistic outlook” for a post-Brexit Britain.
The Conservative Party scored a decisive win in the UK general election, securing 44 percent of the vote (364 seats) with Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour having a hugely disappointing night, finishing on 32 percent (203 seats).
