"She only retired from being a jewelry shop assistant four years ago. She has a daughter and son on four grandchildren. Who I'm hoping all as happy as the rest of us are that Maggie has had the jab. You could even call her the poster girl if that's more tearing Celtic now, those who brought or thought really rather that Britain and the U had already separated. We're right that happened at the end of January this year. For the two hearts and have until the end of this year to agree trade deal. That's it just weeks away, of course, and that matters to industry on both sides of the channel. Well. Late on Thursday, the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Commission president instead of underline issued a joint statement saying Excuse me that conditions for a post breast Brexit trade deal have not yet been met. They say differences remain on three Critical issues, I think, actually, apologies. I think that was yesterday. They issue that statement. Not on Thursday. Any deal has got to be translated and approved by Parliament's on both sides before the end of December. So is it Still possible. Jill Rotter is a senior research fellow at the U. K's in the changing Europe that group on but she joins us now, Jill, So we had this statement. But we also have news that the Prime Minister Boris Johnson is going to go to Brussels to face to face talks. So what do you read in? For that. It's very difficult. I mean, clearly, very different, different views going around. What is clear is that the negotiators themselves so Michelle Bonnie and David Frost, the two official negotiators can't reach a deal within the terms of their negotiating instructions set by their political masters, so it makes sense to get the sort of feel like this is the main people in the room to see if they can sort it out. But a lot of speculation about where the crows Johnson is going to Brussels to be there at the scene of the deal to make moves necessary on hope that you meet him part way or whether this is also Ugo and say, I tried my utmost They were unreasonable. That is why that I am from coming back with my head held high and the UK will go it alone, so we really, really don't know. So he's either the play is he is a hero to the nation for thrashing out a last minute deal, or it's a play to the Tory backbenchers in his own party, the ones on the further to the right who want The UK to be a sovereign nation to have rights over many things for you know for how the country is governed Andreasen made about how we live our lives. Going forward, eh? So he can say to that contingent? Well, I did everything I could well gives beyond that contingent. I mean, that suggested that there was no one in the country. He thought Britain would do better not not having to deal with the You, uh, I don't think that's right. I mean, it's not. I think the majority of you that Britain would do better without a deal. But there's certainly quite a lot of people who would say we shouldn't be giving in to you if they're making unreasonable demands and regard that is the best way of delivering their vision of breath. But when you look at polls, it's certainly It's certainly not what the majority of people thought that even if they voted for Brexit didn't actually think But it would mean no deal at all hard Brexit. Did they know? I mean the assurances all along on indeed, from the prime minister during the election last year was that there was a deal to be done. We heard early on from some the Brexit supporters, even in Theresa May's Cabinet that this Brexit trade deal would be the easiest trade deal in history because You. Can you unlike every other trade deal was starting from a point of the lines regulations. The only problem is that every other trade deal is about countries trying to get closer for mutual benefit. Where is this trade deal is about the two the two negotiators trying to get further apart. You could argue For short run mutual dis benefit. But the U. K breakfast fortunes would certainly hope for some long run advantage in terms off reclaiming sovereignty. That's very important to them. Now, let's talk about the internal market bill. This was the bill with with certain clauses introduced, it was ratified. It was, you know, this international law breaking Billa's many would see it with with the divergence of certain rules applying to Northern Ireland and the signing off of goods between the two countries, and many people around the world is saying Well, this is outrageous. It's the UK government is thinking diverging from that that's now come back into play at this stage of the negotiations. Has that always been a bargaining chip? Do you think that the UK government wherever going to break international law by moving away from this agreement Because it seems as if that is back on the table with the UK saying Well, give us the certain certain things we want on on on fishing on competition rules and the like, and and we'll we'll go back to agreeing to this agreement. Well, it Z always being seen by the UK government something of a negotiating chip in the sense that they've always said that this is an insurance policy about how they want to see the Northern Ireland Protocol that they signed up to in last year's withdrawal agreement. People always said this is how they think it needs to operate. If there is no wider trade deal with the EU, and it's because that trade deal looks harder to get maybe than anticipated the time they're having to take if you like these sort of reserve powers. To make that function, so it's always been lurking there in the background. I think there's a interesting study to be done about with the UK government was right. Did this strengthen their hands and negotiation? Or did it actually just spook the you into thinking or this government's already shown itself to be willing to break? Agreements it's signed up to, and therefore when we look at the bigger, longer trade deal, we really, really need to make sure that they are tied up with no escape hatch because otherwise they'll be pushing at the edges of what we've agreed right from the start.

When a luminary such as yourself is introducing me, Claire in the sports tried this. It is so hard. I know there's been a certain raised eyebrow about why break dancing would be an Olympic sport, but I have tried it and it's very difficult and it's massive. Around the globe. I think it's really interesting that they've decided to kind of go with this because he's kind of scored in the same way in competition that gymnastics might be for technical moves delivered with precision, so it's kind of Getting your head around.
