EU’s Barnier says no progress was made whatsoever on fisheries, far from agreeing on the essential issue of the dispute.
Barnier also said that an agreement at this stage looks unlikely.
Now here is my take…
I think this was pretty much expected. The same thing happened with the withdrawal agreement and a deal was done at the last minute. Both sides will continue to blame each other for a lack of progress before a last-minute deal is agreed.
A comment on Twitter that I very much agree with was:
“If both sides reference October as the deadline, that’s when things start IMO. Nobody is giving away anything in August”. Via @Adamlinton1.
