  1. Rue, Britannia says:

    (Reuters, January 29, 2020): The United Kingdom leaves the European Union an hour before midnight on Friday, casting off into an uncertain Brexit future that also challenges Europe’s post-World War Two project of forging unity from the ruins of conflict.
    After the twists and turns of the Brexit crisis, the country’s most significant geopolitical move since the loss of empire could be an anticlimax of sorts: a transition period preserves membership in all but name until the end of 2020.
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given little clue to what the future holds, promising only to restore confidence for people and businesses.
    “We’ll be out of the EU, free to chart our own course as a sovereign nation,” said Johnson, the New York-born face of the campaign to leave the EU.

    “Britain and the EU are finding it impossible to agree on how to implement trade rules for goods crossing from the British mainland to Northern Ireland. If the stalemate continues to next month, it could become illegal for English sausages to enter Northern Ireland, where EU trading rules remain in force to prevent the creation of a hard Irish border.
    EU food safety rules don’t allow chilled meat products to come into its market from non-members, like the U.K., but Johnson has threatened to ignore those rules and continue importing English meat tubes. That, the EU argues, could undermine the carefully balanced Brexit agreements designed to protect peace in Northern Ireland—and it appears that Biden has sided with Ireland and the EU against Johnson and Britain.
    Biden’s apparent decision to wade into what has become known as The Sausage War has infuriated some Brexit-loving Brits” [many of whom had sworn allegiance to Donald Trump]. https://www.thedailybeast.com/brexit-brits-freak-out-at-senile-biden-after-he-wades-into-boris-johnsons-sausage-war

    Food and drink exports from the United Kingdom to the European Union nearly halved during the first three months of this year compared with the same period in 2020, mostly due to changes in post-Brexit trading relationships but also as the pandemic weighed.
    Figures published on Friday by the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) revealed a 47 percent downturn in such sales to the bloc in the first quarter of 2021, which followed the UK’s exit from its single market and customs union at the end of last year. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/6/18/uk-food-and-drink-exports-to-eu-almost-halve-in-first-quarter
