The Telegraph shouted: May accused of Brexit climbdown as UK agrees to free movement in the transition period! On twitter, Brexiteers screamed NO. NO NO!
Breitbart reports: David Davis — whose formerly tough pro-Brexit stance seems to have been worn down during his time negotiating in Brussels to a point where he greeted today’s news of another massive capitulation as good news — spoke next and dropped the fisheries bombshell, admitting that not only would Britain not take back control of its fisheries, but that the proportion of fish that UK fishermen are allowed to catch from their own waters under EU laws wouldn’t change through the transition.
