Re: Brexit Part 8: the UK government saying what I want is full access and divergence

Someone gave me a page per day calendar with 'this day in history' and for Jan. 31, it was about the execution of Guy Fawkes in 1606 for his attempt to do a mass murder of Parliament. Funny coincidence as the UK may have executed itself from the EU. Indeed. So far, I don't see much change reported ...
