Boris got Brexit done as MEPs finally ratify zero tariff and zero quota trade deal

The European Parliament has overwhelmingly ratified the EU’s post-Brexit trade deal with Britain in a vote yesterday.

In the final tally, 660 MEPs voted in favour of the trade deal and quota-free deal on goods with Britain, with just five, including members of the Greek Communist Party and a former Czech general voting against it. There were 32 abstentions.

The agreement provides the framework for Britain’s new relationship with the 27-member union, five years after Britons voted to end its 47-year membership.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

“Great news that the European Parliament has voted overwhelmingly in favour of our zero tariffs, zero quotas Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

“Now is the time to look forward to a new relationship with the EU and a more Global Britain.”

David Sassoli, President of the EU Assembly said:

“The European Parliament voted on the most far reaching agreement the EU has ever reached with a third country.

“This can form the foundation on which we build a new forward-looking EU-UK relationship.”

  1. Well done, Boris. You demonstrated what can be achieved if you reject the advice of the appeasers, play to our strengths and stand firm. You remind me of a guy called President Trump.

  2. HEAR HEAR BORIS AND TRUMP BOTH WORK FOR THEIR COUNTRIES AND THE PEOPLE.BOTH IGNORE THE PATHETIC PESSIMISTS AND GET ON WITH THE JOB..

  3. Brexit will not be completed in the United Kingdom until the NI Protocol is extinguished.Shame on you who think its OK to leave NI within the customs union exposed to laws and customs over which that part of your United Kingdom has no mechinism to change or influence. Is this democracy at work. Thank you Boris.

  4. If getting brexit done means: putting NI peace at risk, adding massive inefficiency to multiple businesses, downgrading British passports, driving, pilots licences & qualifications and dangerously cloth eared leadership, then yes, bravo.
