Chancellor Philip Hammond has said any "transitional deal" in the immediate period after Brexit must end by the time of the next general election.
He said there must be "business as usual, life as normal" for Britons as the UK exits the EU.
Have I missed something here? A transitional deal., when was it confirmed there will be a transitional deal?
Although, I believe it will be necessary for some interim arrangement post Brexit, I am not sure that of the bulk of the people who voted Brexit, will understand that Brexit won't be the end of the EU's affairs in the UK. Everyone will assume that come April 2019, that's it, we're outta the EU, but a transitional deal would mean there would still be some ties with the EU in some form.
