My thinking here is it’ll come down to whatever personally benefits BoJo’s career the most, which might be cobbled together deal rather than No Deal, because then he can trumpet his “got Brexit done” bit and won’t have to worry about a compliant press pointing out pesky details about it being shit and contradicting a load of stuff he said before.

Pretty sure I’ve been wrong at every point of this though tbh so it maybe makes more sense to default to “whatever the worst possible outcome is” i.e. No Deal

And what if there’s no deal?

All true but even if there’s no deal the media will just say the EU stabbed the UK in the back and it’s all their fault etc, so either outcome is fine really for Boris Johnson and the Tories

High streets are permafucked aren’t they? Not just Topshop/ Debenhams/ Peacocks but also because of fewer foreign students in the city centres after Brexit and fewer people being in offices full time (even if most do go back after the vaccine it’ll never be what it was).
The centres will slowly become a place of far smaller, completely gentrified shopping ‘experiences’ outpricing most of the population.

Similar things happening in Scottish labour in the last couple of years too.

Absolutely done me this.

Does anyone have the paywalled text of the second homes Telegraph article?

Not saying that I definitely know a smug Brexit voter who owns a second home in France, but, well…
