    Agreed, but Trump doesn't know that. He will absolutely love showing off a trade deal and rubbing it in the EU's face.

    Of course Trump knows this because his advisors will tell him every time the subject comes up.

    Trump is an innate Atlanticist( because his mother was born in Scotland?) and wants a trade deal. Because it is good for the US economy and to piss off the Left both at home and internationally. He quite enjoys this. But not for electoral reasons.

    Both sides have agreed that there won't be an extension. What's the worst that can happen?

    Boris certainly seems to have gained a stronger hand. UK asking for a bare bones deal has most likely spooked a number of nations who just want to trade free of hassle and tariffs.

    Barnier no longer talking about level playing field and fishing rights.

    COVID has helped his position. Without COVID, the UK lefty media would have done Barnier's job for him.

    UK seem to have convinced EU that they mean what they say on fishing and ECJ etc.

    Is there now time enough to do a deal? I'm still expecting a short term deal.

    If EU can't make equivalent offer to UK as the Canada deal, why wouldn't UK just walk?

    Boris is pretending that he can walk away for sure - pretty convincingly as well. However, the UK is clearly not ready to go alone. The EU know that, which gives them a perceived edge. However, the UK are also aware that the EU desperately want a deal as well. It is the greatest game of poker played out on an International scale. Rather than a single big deal, the obvious next step is to start on separate smaller deals and/or temporary a temporary deal. It is in everyones interest.
