>From today's news:

*The eighth round of post-Brexit trade negotiations between the UK and the
European Union starts today, and it won't be pretty. Prime Minister Boris
Johnson will tell EU negotiators that unless a deal is reached by
mid-October, the UK will walk away from the table

Plus, the British government is reportedly set to release legislation that
will undermine some of the legal force of the original Brexit agreement. If
these things happen, the UK would run into the December 31 trade deadline
without a deal. Johnson has said that would actually be good for the
country, but that’s definitely not a popular opinion

As for the EU, it's warning the UK that it can’t back out on Brexit
promises already made

It seems that the UK likes to push things off until the last minute, hoping
the Germans will push the French and the other nations into accepting a
compromise.
