UK deal “more than bumpy”

The COVID Diaries – 286 9th February

David Frost, the government’s chief Brexit negotiator, has conceded that the start of the UK’s deal with the European Union has been “more than bumpy” in the six weeks after the transition out of the single market and customs union.

He admitted there had been a failure to achieve the “friendly cooperation between sovereign equals” which the UK claimed to be its aim.
