"Confident we will be able to keep things flowing smoothly at the border."
"External tariff regime would be quite formidable for some EU products."
"Our legal advice is that we need to go further than article 16."
"I don't believe the EU is negotiating in good faith. Always possible I am mistaken, perhaps they'll prove me wrong."
