Journalists are savouring this Christmas – next year’s will likely be cancelled by Brexit
With the end of the initial transition period set to 31 December 2020, the festive period will be put on hold for newsrooms up and down the country

If only it were true. If only all the Irish backstop explainers we have to periodically knock out, the analyses of Franco-British relations, the opinion articles on hard vs soft – if only Groundhog Day ended on 31 January 2020.
But it won’t, because Brexit 2: The Trade Deals is just getting started.
