Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There will be no agreement before the next EU Council. Von der Layen meeting BoJo tomorrow to tell him so. At least that is what the Commission is leaking to the press (Euronews, Times). That means no chance of approval ahead of the 2nd of January. They just ran out of time ...

Either BoJo extends the transition period, or WTO rules kick in by default in January. My gut tells me a watershed moment will take place this weekend.
