每日新闻更新 - 退欧奇幻剧 The Daily Update - Brexit fantasies

当今的英国人有很多值得感恩的事情:比如停靠在朴次茅斯码头的伊丽莎白女王号航母,再比如英国国家统计局最新发布的数据——就业率(75.1%)达到42年来的历史最高失业率(4.4%)达到最低。然而,首批退欧行动报告的内容就逊色很多——“政府的愿景是同欧盟建立全新深入的独特伙伴关系”。比利时前首相、目前的欧洲议会议员、欧盟退欧谈判员以及《Europe’s Last Chance》的作者Guy Verhofstadt将该报告的核心立场总结为“奇幻剧”。

政府的目标是尽可能最大程度实现贸易自由、减少障碍,但其他27个欧盟国家一致认为这不可能在单一市场和关税联盟之外实现,这种立场可能影响一些临时关税规定,例如《未来关税安排》中提出的一些规定。另外,在公民权利和移民费用协议达成之前,他们完全不在意我们偏好的关税安排。

除了预告即将颁布关于贸易政策以及同北爱尔兰的复杂边境问题的文件,最近这份报告简述了未来关税关系的乐观计划。第一种可能是“在英国和欧盟之间形成高度精简的关税安排,几乎不需要继续执行现有条款即可减少和消除贸易壁垒,推行基于科技的解决方案”。第二种方案是“同欧盟形成新的关税关系,清除英国欧盟关税壁垒,这是前所未有的方式,执行起来会有困难”。最后的这部分陈述是整个报告中唯一确切的阐述。退欧影子部长Keir Starmer很直白地说:“内阁在关键问题上观点分歧,在两个截然不同但同样难以实现的选择上犹豫不决。”

自从第50条启动后已经过去20周了,这意味着英国已经用去了谈判时间的五分之一。然而没有一个人敢说我们已经为成功离开欧盟加速了20%,或者在成功达成协议的路上走了20%。随着英国和欧盟的谈判地位越来越清晰,关于David Davis吃蛋糕的漫画图在网上越来越多,但到他吃完的时候,有人可能会问是否真的存在这块蛋糕。
