Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am probably confused, but isn't Brexit a two-step project: first, the divorce, and second, any subsequent trade or other treaties?

If so, BoJo can argue, perhaps, that the UK won't pay the 39B divorce settlement, and will leave without a deal. That covers the first part.

But then what? Would the EU begin to negotiate the treaties before the 39B is delivered? I would think not, but that doesn't affect his current promise. Seems like he is making a supportable claim, but just shading it to avoid mention of what happens after leaving.
