    A first step towards an orderly Brexit withdrawal has been settled.

    The UK and EU have agreed on a "large part" of the agreement that will lead to the "orderly withdrawal" of the UK.

    The EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the two sides had agreed on a transition period, calling the announcement a "decisive step".

    He spoke after meeting with the UK's Brexit secretary David Davis.

    The transitional period will begin from Brexit day - 29 March 2019 - and is designed to smooth the path to the future permanent relationship.

    Maybe I am just being my usual cynical self, but I would love to know what David Davis has given away to get into this position.

    AND... will we ever know what we have lost in order to get out of the EU ?

    We will find out eventually as the full get-out procedure will have to be finally put to the whole parliament for a vote before we can make the complete break.

    One would HOPE that that would happen, but, if I know the Tories, and especially Theresa May, we are going to see - or rather NOT see - as many deals as they can do behind closed doors as possible.

    Two serious points amongst many others have still to be sorted out. The CFP and the Irish border could be stopping blocks.
