The United Kingdom and European Union announced on Thursday that they had agreed on a post-Brexit trade deal.

The move will ease Britain’s December 31st departure date and shape the relationship between the two for years to come.

The agreement, which requires ratification from both sides, appears to be a relief for all involved.

Details on the accord are not yet publicly available but the United Kingdom will, as planned, leave the EU customs union, one year after the Britain officially left the bloc.

Regardless of the fine print, having a Brexit deal in place is almost universally considered better than a “no deal” Brexit, which had been forecast for months and would have resulted in chaos.  Indeed, the chaos as country after country shut its border to Britain after the revelation of a new and highly contagious strain of the coronavirus served as a preview of what might come without a deal in place.
