We’ve all got bigger things on our minds right now than Brexit. Wasn’t it supposed to “get done” in January? There’s a pandemic on, after all. Why should anyone care about some abstruse discussions about trade in Brussels?
About 200-300 pro-European Union supporters were mocked by pro-Brexit supporters as they walked from Downing Street to the office of the European Commission in London. Police formed a line to keep the two groups apart.
Brexit became official Friday at 11 p.m. in London and midnight in Brussels, where the EU is headquartered.
The European Union and Britain said on Sunday they will “go the extra mile” to clinch a post-Brexit trade agreement that would avert New Year’s chaos and cost for cross-border commerce.
