Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The reality is UK status as third country viz. EU27.

Third country status is defined by provisions of TFEU and GATT 1994 wherever cited in the Withdrawal Agreement. International instruments to which UK and EU are parties will succeed "bi-lateral" terms of the WA.

Absent an act to revoke its A.50 and regardless of an act to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement (transition inclusive) or "flextesion" deadlines of the so-called (no) negotiation period, UK will finally convert to third country.

Accordingly, UK financial and banking services firms have been and are entering conforming private charters with EU/EC (espec. data sharing) and each EU27 nation-state (espec. tax regime) where they intend to domicile for purposes of business including but not limited to fiduciary obligations to UK gov financial settlement with EU gov outstanding.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
