Brexit

Ursula von der Leyen and the three suits: first too small, second too big and third just right

On Sunday 13 December 2020, Ursula von der Leyen said the EU’s relations with the UK are going to be “about new beginnings with old friends”.

She was asked if the two sides could reach a deal with three weeks left before the transition period ends, and future trading would be under World Trade Organization rules.

The President of the European Commission said "there is movement" in the Brexit talks but the UK had the choice to “play by our rules” if it wants "seamless access" to the EU single market, or see “border and tariffs”.[3]
