    Default Vassalage

    The EU starts to flex it's powers:

    Under the terms of the transition period, during which the UK stays in the single market and customs union but none of Brussels’s decision-making institutions, EU law continues to be superior to UK national law.



    The government was given two months by the commission to amend a levy on heavy trucks on which UK-registered drivers can get a discount. The EU’s executive branch said the levy discriminated against those based in member states.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Possibly, possibly not. Just getting to this transition period has been a long hard struggle. What are the odds on there being an extension even though Johnson said there won't be one?
