Prime Minister Johnson gave the nation an early Christmas present today as he secured a historic Brexit deal which finally sees the UK take back control and end four years of bitter rowing.
Four years, five months and 29 days after the British people voted to leave the EU, the PM will make an announcement from Downing Street shortly.
UK sources promised that everything promised in the 2016 referendum was now delivered – and we would finally take back control of our money, borders, laws, fishing waters and trade.
A Downing Street source said: “The deal is fantastic news for families and businesses in every part of the UK. We have signed the first free trade agreement based on zero tariffs and zero quotas that has ever been achieved with the EU
“The deal is the biggest bilateral trade deal signed by either side, covering trade worth £668bn in 2019.”
