Technical point of order: we left the EU on 31st Jan this year, and we are currently in the transition period, during which the UK remains subject to EU law and we continue to participate in the EU's single market and customs union.
But, that transition period ends in ~50 days time because the UK Govt declined to seek, by the 30 June deadline that applied for such an action, the 12-24 month optional transition period extension which the Withdrawal Agreement had made provision for.
How much transition do we need? It's been 4 1/2 years already.
Since things like the necessary IT systems, needed whether there is a bare-bones deal or not, are either not completed or not fully tested it looks like we could certainly do with a little more time.
