What's the betting that it'll be a crap deal, shamelessly sold to the people?

Whichever way, it is a `hard` Brexit; the soft Brexit option sailed years ago.

Still it won`t be hard enough for some boneheads.

Be interested to hear the French perspective after Johnson and his flunkies have done their lap of honour...

They seem to be more concerned with the identity of the next PSG manager at the moment.

Glad it's out of the way. Both sides claiming some sort of victory. Be interesting to see how it compares to what we had before Brexit.

It sounds like Boris has done a great deal for you all.

You never doubted it and must be so proud.

Lucky so-and-sos.

Is it a good deal for the UK, or what?

A consensus of European leaders would say it's a 'balanced' agreement. I, being sceptical, would say that means there is a lot in the favour of Europe.

Too early to tell. It's real test will be in 9-12 months. Everyone's read the selective quotes and headlines, but I doubt anyone has read the whole thing.

Rather than weighing up the pro's and cons and deciding on the merits of the deal lines are already drawn pretty much the same as they were at the time of the referendum.

Politics is polarised and the here and now an irrelevance to most.

What's happened to the UK is such a pity.

It's not so bad for the older generation who are set up and will only have a bit of inconvenience with extra passport controls when going on holiday.

I feel sorry for the younger generation who may have wanted to cast their gaze to other horzons and enjoy the same benefits I / we had.

I don't know what any of th details of the deal are but I suspect it'll be tough to find an upside anywhere at all.

Read this blog out of habit.

Strange now the deal is done and we have exited the federal states of Europe.

Sad that I cannot get it out of my head.

Gibraltar gets UK-Spain deal to keep open border

Spain has reached a deal with the UK to maintain free movement to and from Gibraltar once the UK formally leaves the EU on Friday.

To avoid a hard border, Gibraltar will join the EU's Schengen zone and follow other EU rules, while remaining a British Overseas Territory.

The deal was announced by Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha González Laya, just hours before the UK exits the EU.

The Rock voted Remain in 2016 and about 15,000 Spanish workers go there daily.

"With this [agreement], the fence is removed, Schengen is applied to Gibraltar... it allows for the lifting of controls between Gibraltar and Spain," said Ms González Laya.

The Gibraltar deal will mean the EU sending Frontex border guards to facilitate free movement to and from Gibraltar. Their role is planned to last four years.

Gibraltarians are British citizens. They elect their own representatives to the territory's House of Assembly, while the British monarch appoints a governor.

The territory - home to a British military garrison and naval base - is self-governing in all areas except defence and foreign policy.

Ms González Laya did not say whether Spanish border guards would eventually be posted at Gibraltar's airport and/or seaport which, under the deal, will be de facto part of the EU's external border.

The Gibraltar deal would also mean the territory complying with EU fair competition rules in areas such as financial policy, the environment and the labour market, Ms González Laya said.

Twenty-two EU states are in the passport-free Schengen zone, as are Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein, but the UK has never been in it.

Once Gibraltar joins it, EU citizens arriving from Spain or another Schengen country will avoid passport checks, while arrivals from the UK will have to go through passport control, as is already the case.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called Thursday's deal a "political framework" to form the basis of a separate treaty with the EU regarding Gibraltar.

The deal does not address the thorny issue of sovereignty. Spain has long disputed British sovereignty over the Rock which was ceded to Britain in 1713 and which is now home to about 34,000 people. The Remain vote there was an overwhelming 96% in the 2016 EU referendum.

The plan is to have a six-month transition period and then formalise the new arrangements with a treaty.

Under the current tight Covid rules, there are restrictions on UK citizens arriving via Gibraltar's airport, the UK Foreign Office says.

Dominic Raab said "all sides are committed to mitigating the effects of the end of the [Brexit] Transition Period on Gibraltar, and in particular ensure border fluidity, which is clearly in the best interests of the people living on both sides.

"We remain steadfast in our support for Gibraltar, and its sovereignty is safeguarded."
