The Guardian view on Brexit deadlines: reality will not be deferred | The Guardian

“The UK, unleashed from Brussels, was meant to be so mighty with restored sovereignty that it could call the shots in international negotiations. Things haven’t worked out that way. US president Joe Biden is in no hurry to do the trade deal heralded by Eurosceptics as a lucrative alternative to the single market. It was reported Wednesday that, to secure a trade deal with Australia, Britain agreed to drop commitments to the Paris climate agreement – capitulation in an area where Johnson will pretend to claim global leadership at the COP 26 summit later this year.”
