Flint Specialist Partner Philip Rycroft provides his views on why a Brexit deal – although relatively thin- is better than a no deal. He argues that with a no deal, sectors like agri-good and automotive would be hit be high tariffs, and the EU would have little incentive to put in place easements to help manage the new trade border from 1 January. He adds that such a scenario would make it harder to get deals on other aspects of the relationship like internal security. A no deal Brexit would also further destablise the Union.
