EU have now signed a major trade and services deal with Japan. A nice buffer for the loss of the UK and a poke in the eye to those that say the best way for the UK to get trade deals around the world is to get out of the EU.
I think, although I may be wrong here as it gets complicated, that this also makes a UK trading situation with Japan under WTO (no deal option) in a worse position. Certainly the car industry will be sweating on having their plants moved to Europe.If the Japan deal is ratified before the UK leaves then it will apply to the UK after leaving (with a re-write) but, and it's the big but, cars assembled in the UK then have to enter Europe under tariffs.
All gets very messy.
