max - "if we have to" is a bit different to 'because we want to'. It is and always has been the booby prize. There is a worse scenario - No Deal on 01/01/21 followed by trade talks and a deal later in a few months. Companies have today's arrangements, followed by WTO and then onto another basis. This would be the mad hatters tea party. We should not discount it.

John Redwood@johnredwood4hA long complex legal Agreement that locks the UK back into many features of the EU that hinder us is not the Christmas present the UK needs.

In today's brief: Another missed Brexit deadline as leaders agree to continue Brexit talks; No deal still the most likely option, says Boris; EU move on 'lightning tariffs' issue; and Raab says Britain will protect its waters in event of no deal.Another missed deadline: It's deadline day for Brexit talks... at least it was supposed to be. Following a "constructive and useful phone call with Boris Johnson", Ursula von der Leyen confirmed that talks will continue past yet another deadline. Negotiators have been working over recent days, looking to overcome the remaining issues that are blocking a trade deal. It seems that in these talks, someone has moved and now the sides see a possible pathway towards a deal.Downing Street have also released their own copy of the Joint Statement confirming the extension. "Despite the fact that deadlines have been missed over and over we think it is responsible at this point to go the extra mile," it reads. No deal still most likely option, says PM: The Prime Minister has since held a cabinet meeting after speaking to the Commission President, in which he is said to have sounded downbeat about the prospects of a deal and talked about WTO being the default option. He also said he still wants to speak to European leaders and is ready to do so but Brussels continues to prefer that all communications happen through one point of contact.Since then, Boris Johnson has told broadcasters that "we're still very far apart on key things" and that "the most likely thing now is that we have to get ready for WTO terms - Australia terms". He said that the UK won't be walking away from the talks and will go the extra mile in negotiations but that we've made huge preparations for a no deal outcome. Boris also said he was prepared to "be as creative as we possibly can" in the talks but said that the UK cannot compromise on the "fundamental nature of what Brexit is about - us being able to control our laws, our fisheries".Last night, Number 10 had been saying that "as things stand the offer on the table from the EU remains unacceptable" and the prospect of a deal looked very bleak indeed. "The prime minister will leave no stone unturned in this process, but he is absolutely clear: any agreement must be fair and respect the fundamental position that the UK will be a sovereign nation in three weeks' time," the source said. The tone being struck by von der Leyen this morning is drastically different from that of last night. EU reacts to extension news: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said today that everything should be done to reach a trade deal between the UK and EU. "Every opportunity to reach a deal is highly welcome," she said at a news conference in Berlin. Simon Coveney reacted to the Joint Statement saying: "Time to hold our nerve and allow the negotiators to inch progress forward - even at this late stage. Joint statement on Brexit negotiations is a good signal. A deal clearly very difficult, but possible."Movement in talks over 'ratchet clause': Dominic Raab had been on Sky News this morning, laying the groundwork for the eventual continuation of talks. On Wednesday, Boris Johnson set out a specific objection to doing a deal with the EU and that was if Britain refused to follow EU rules in the future there would be automatic punishment. On Friday, von der Leyen rolled back on this demand, suggesting it was no longer true. Today, Dominic Raab was asked what the biggest specific objection was and he had a completely different one to that of Boris just 4 days ago. Instead, he says that in the event Britain doesn't follow EU rules in the future, they were worried that the punishment may be too severe and that tariffs may be imposed on too many things or on sectors unrelated to the area of dispute.As talks have continued it seems that the EU have dropped its insistence on a 'ratchet clause' which would have formalised the principle that both sides should keep up with each other's standards. Instead talks are focused on 'managed divergence' which the EU had previously rejected on the ground that it was too risky. Now the sides are trying to work out how unfair competition is defined and the process for triggering rebalancing measures as well as how extensive they will be - something that Raab alluded to.Either way, there has been progress but this doesn't necessarily mean a deal is on the horizon. It does however mean that the UK is actively pursuing conversations that would allow the EU to use 'rebalancing measures' for areas in which the UK is found to have gained an unfair advantage by a difference in standards. The EU originally wanted the ability to have the unilateral right to apply these measures but now the potential for an independent arbitrage system is being discussed with the potential for either side to trigger a 'distortion test'. We will protect our waters in event of no deal, says Raab: Over the weekend there has been a lot of debate over fisheries. Some in Brussels have come out to condemn the idea that Britain would protect its fishing waters in the event of no-deal. Reports say that The Royal Navy Police will be given the power to arrest French and other EU fishermen who illegally enter Britain's waters if no agreement is reached.The government is preparing legislation to extend the powers of the naval police so that they can board foreign vessels amid concerns about violent clashes in the Channel. This morning Raab confirmed that if we do leave on WTO terms, "we will of course enforce our waters around fisheries" and that EU fishermen would have zero guaranteed access.The media have been flocking to this story and getting comment from anyone who will condemn the idea, but have also been failing to mention the fact that the UK already has patrol vessels safeguarding territorial waters and protecting fish, the only difference in a no deal scenario would be that UK ships would no longer be enforcing EU rules as well.UK fishermen write to PM over distant-waters fishing: Some of the UK's fishermen have written to Boris Johnson to ask for confirmation that they will not lose their historic fishing rights to distant waters fishing off Norway, Greenland and the Faroes as a consequence of leaving the EU. They say that the Framework Fisheries Agreement with Norway does not guarantee this and have asked for clarification on whether or not they will be able to continue fishing again in January.

Love to know if Crispin Odey has taken a short position on Stirling in the recent past. Like Boris he is a well connected ex public schoolboy and a hedge fund manager. He has lost huge amounts of money in recent times from his rash wild bets. But he does finance Johnson election bids and is a close friend. But this extension makes a deal possible.

What bit do you not understand Min? The Prime Minister added: "Let's see what we can achieve. But in the meantime, get ready, with confidence, for January 1 - trade on WTO terms if we have to."

It's pathetic, that's what it is - on both sides. We cannot keep on kicking this 'binary outcome' down the road. People need to plan. Businesses need to know. Investors need to know. Politicians need real world jobs - they are so out-of-touch it beggars belief.

Live Brexit latest news: Boris Johnson tells country to prepare for no deal 'with confidence' as talks run past deadline Catherine Neilan, politics live editor Amy Jones, political correspondent 13 DECEMBER 2020 • 2:21PM https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/12/13/brexit-no-deal-news-boris-johnson-trade-latest-eu-uk/ Boris Johnson has said there is a Brexit trade "deal to be done" but warned that the UK and EU "remain very far apart" on the key issues, as he urged the country to prepare for no deal. The Prime Minister and European Commission President this morning agreed to extend today's deadline, issuing a joint statement saying that despite the “exhaustion” from almost a year of trade talks, it was “responsible to go the extra mile”. But speaking later, Mr Johnson struck a more downbeat tone. "We are always happy to talk and to make progress where we can. I do think, as I say, there is a deal to be done if our partners want to do it. But we remain very far apart on these key issues," he said. "The UK can't be locked into the EU's regulatory orbit and we've obviously got to take back control of our fisheries four-and-a-half years after people voted for it." The Prime Minister added: "Let's see what we can achieve. But in the meantime, get ready, with confidence, for January 1 - trade on WTO terms if we have to."
