Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, it will only the first agreement ("contract") won't resemble anything that UK yella sheets have been training ("grooming") their readers to expect--not Canada, not Norway, not NAFTA, +++. Rhetorical attempts will be made by scribblers to fit it into one of those glass shoes.

The agreement proffered by EU for PM signature and parliament's approval will represent the Political Declaration in its "legal form". Sadly, the Political Declaration is not a household word for bilateral execution of customs duties. True, mass confusion in the UK will recur, but the "deal" will be done sequentially. That is in a series of partial quotes on the basis until the whole project is complete. One tortured event every two to three years, I suppose.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
