    We are now into April and its likely there will be no negotiations until this pandemic is over. What are we looking at, could we survive on WTO rules, will we ask for an extension?

    I think the obvious option is to agree an extension possibly to next March to give both sides a chance to come to an agreement. I think the German’s will be very keen to get a deal.

    There needs to be an extension IMHO. The default WTO just isn’t going to cut it.

    An extension. surely and for a couple of years too..this is a hole of gargantuan proportions and to go it alone would be folly.

    Reckon it’ll need more than a few months. The economies of Europe (and I include the UK in that, geographically at least) are going to be pretty much wrecked. Will takes ages to put them back together. In the motor industry, I suggest we order VAG management to get it going again.

    As a result of the virus are we in a better negotiating position now than before.

    We are in a dire financial position as a result of covid 19 (the 19 comes from 2019 which is when this strain was discovered, it is NOT the 19th strain of the virus) but countries like Spain and Italy are much worse off than us.

    Will the virus make people realise that we are all in this together and come to a fair and amicable agreement? We will soon find out as no extension has been agreed so the clock is ticking.

    I hope that Covid 19 has made the government realise that we need to maintain close ties with Europe, as this pandemic has shown how dependent we are going to be going forward on the good will and cooperation of our neighbours.
