Brexit: UK will not become ‘Singapore on Thames’, expert says

After months of talks, negotiators from both sides of the Brexit divide announced some movement on Monday on sticking points that are preventing an agreement on the future relationship between the EU and the UK. Jonathan Portes, a Professor of Economics and Public Policy at King’s College London, notes that “deal or no deal”, a lot of the changes Brexit brings will come into effect on January 1, including an end to free movement. But he believes that on some issues such as state aid, the UK could actually move closer to the practices currently employed in EU nations.
