    French President Emmanuel Macron today pleaded with Britain not to be an 'unfair competitor' against the EU after Brexit.

    He said: 'My hope is that the United Kingdom remains an ally, a friend and an extremely close partner. The condition is to define the rules of a fair relationship.

    'We do not want Britain to be an unfair competitor.'

    The reactions captured on the Daily Mail link above suggest that EU-27 are going to sit up and discuss/negotiate meaningfully. Even wild boy Putin is keen to chat!!!

    Brexit: MPs give final backing to Withdrawal Agreement Bill

    MPs have given their final backing to the bill that will implement the UK government's Brexit deal.
    The Commons voted 330 to 231 in favour of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and it will now pass to the House of Lords for further scrutiny next week.
    If peers choose to amend it will it come back before MPs.

    The bill covers "divorce" payments to the EU, citizens' rights, customs arrangements for Northern Ireland and the planned 11-month transition period.
    The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 January.

    The bill comfortably cleared its third reading in the House of Commons, as expected, with a majority of 99. All 330 votes in favour were Conservative.
    It took just three days for the bill to pass the remaining stages in the Commons, after MPs gave their initial approval to the legislation before the Christmas recess.

    Theresa May - Boris Johnson's predecessor in Downing Street - repeatedly failed to get her Brexit agreement passed by MPs, which led to her resignation as prime minister.

    Mr Johnson has also insisted a deal is possible by December 2020 and has said the transition period will not be extended.
    He has said the UK is ready to start negotiations "as soon as possible" after 31 January.

    On Wednesday, new European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen warned it would be "impossible" to reach a comprehensive trade deal by the end of 2020.
