Wow!  What a Christmas, the Brexit deal's been done on the best possible terms. Boris accomplished a free trade deal with no tariffs so the future is guaranteed.

Eat it up all those who predicted doom and gloom.  @)(++(*

A teensy bit goady there.  IMO we are at the start of Britainís slide down the greasy pole to a poorer, more fractured and more isolated nation, nothing to celebrate and nothing to eat up (apart from a shed load of Quality Street and cheese).  Merry Christmas.

G-Unit:
I was living in Germany when the UK joined the EEC as it was then. We shopped in our local 'corner shop' only in emergencies because the price of food in Germany was up to three times higher than back home or in our NAAFI supermarkets. This caused me some concerns but we were promised cheaper electrical goods, which were indeed much cheaper than in the UK. The price of food in the UK rose as expected, and the fall in other prices didn't materialise.

Perhaps the UK will be able to benefit from lower food prices now we are free again from the anti-competitive CAP, which protected EU countries from competition from both outside and inside the EU.

Vertigo Swirl:
Our food prices are already amongst the cheapest in Europe, imports are likely to go up in price because of costs involved in the increased red tape and delays in the supply chain.

Not in the least VS, the sky's the limit now that the EU shackles have been removed. No more EU citizens walking into the UK with sub standard or fake professional credentials and taking British jobs.
