it is Conceivable that the British would ask for a postponement of the discharge date, in order to clarify their internal problems, yet such a request is not received in Brussels. In the EU capital, it is therefore unabated, the risk of a so-called hard Brexits, so a departure of the British has risen without a contract.

customs President Hercher said that the inch was also prepared for this case. “We do what we do with Non-EU countries have always been, only with a country.” The customs President hopes, however, that the British and the EU to agree on an exit agreement. “That would give us two years of transition time.”
