Probably, it depends on what 100% looks like, and I'm sure you don't know the answer to that either

Europe ostracising the UK? Who would have thought it?

The closed border is a good practice run for next year. It'll be a short-term disaster for sure. I'm sure it'll improve over time but I'd guess it will still be detrimental to the country. It's silly as what do we actually gain from leaving?

A deal agreed at last. It must have been a compromise on both sides. The detail may be in the small print but at least we can move forward now with a little more certainty.

Yes, assuming that the details are acceptable then this is good news. Amazing how the tabloids were hailing Boris as a hero before the deal is even released, just goes to show how much media control the Tories have. I reckon the whole rollercoaster was deliberate so Boris can look like he's the hero, desperately managing to secure a deal at the last minute.

According to leading Brexiteers, the deal is four times worse than Theresa May's. She must be wetting herself.

Great news, we are out and free. Now we can build for the future making our own decisions.

Yes but look who’s making the decisions......which is not great news.
What decisions can we make that will make such a difference?

A lot of people seem to think this deal is very poor. I've not read it but supposedly May's one was better, Boris trying to rally us all through blind patriotism though!

I've wondered this myself, what are these decisions that we can now make? I'm concerned that we've now lost our protection against workers rights such as paid annual leave. The EU laws have protected us & with the UK keen to regain some sort of competitive advantage, a "flexible" workforce could new their incentive for inward investment.
