UK plans to override parts of Brexit Withdrawal Agreement – When will business have certainty/clarity?

UK’s prime minister Boris Johnson is drawing up legislation that will override the Brexit withdrawal agreement on Northern Ireland.

The negotiations seem to have been dropped to a point below zero again, with both the UK and the EU not willing to give in on their positions. If no agreement is reached, there will still be a ‘hard Brexit’ on 31 December 2020.
