Abstract

All along the German presidency of the European Union, one of its key stakes will have been to conclude the negotiations with London about future relations between the EU and the United Kingdom.
Michel Barnier, in charge of leading these negotiations, was able to rely on the full support of the German presidency, both to avoid a highly damaging no deal, and to preserve the unity of the 27 member states. The agreement, reached during Christmas Eve 2020 after numerous ups and downs, presents a framework within which the future relationship can be accommodated.
However, Michel Barnier urges the Europeans to remain vigilant. As pointed out by the authors, the United Kingdom post-Brexit, driven by backward national-populist ideology and rampant corruption at the highest level of government, will remain the enfant terrible of a Europe that the most ardent proponents of Brexit still want to destroy.
