    Should be finalised sometime in October...slowly more details are emerging and this might cause concern to some people:

    Under the new deal, the UK and Japan have agreed to the “free flow of data” by not enforcing localisation requirements. This will allow Japanese conglomerates like Sony, and British fintech firms, such as Revolut and Transferwise, to operate from offshore servers.

    The two countries also said that they would not mandate disclosure of source code of their software or algorithms, or share encryption information.
    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.
