Great Britain: What does the US election have to do with Brexit?
Trump or Biden? The outcome of the US presidential election will depend heavily on whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson strives for a free trade agreement with the EU - or the no-deal. © Tolga Akmen / AFP Brexit supporters from Washington: A balloon with a phenotypical resemblance to the US President hovers in London.
EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not achieve a breakthrough in a conversation about the Brexit trade pact.
There has been progress recently, but there are still significant differences, they said after a phone call. This applies above all to the areas of competitive conditions and fisheries. Brussels and London want to negotiate on Monday. Parts of the opposition called on Johnson to finally change his Brexit policy after the US presidential election and called him "Britain's Trump".
Carlos Dunlap reworked deal to facilitate trade to Seahawks
Dunlap should help the 6-1 Seahawks generate more pressure against opposing quarterbacks, something they’ve struggled to do thus far in 2020. Despite his rocky first half with the Bengals, the veteran boasts 82.5 career sacks and plenty of ability on the edge.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

The Brexit transition phase will end in less than two months. Then Great Britain leaves the EU single market and the customs union. Without a contract there is a risk of tariffs and other trade barriers.
Two developments could increase the pressure on Great Britain to reach a trade pact with the EU: On the one hand, the country is particularly badly affected by the corona pandemic and is already putting a heavy strain on the economy. On the other hand, according to commentators, the change of president in the USA could increase the chance of a deal between London and Brussels.

Election winner Joe Biden from the Democrats is fond of the EU - in contrast to Brexit supporter Donald Trump, who primarily had a lucrative trade agreement with Great Britain in mind. The leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in the British Parliament, Ian Blackford, asked Johnson that he should now think about his reputation as "Britain's Trump". Johnson's “extreme Brexit policy” and his proximity to Trump have “increasingly isolated him from the world stage,” he tweeted. Labor leader Keir Starmer praised Biden's "decency, integrity, compassion and strength".

The remaining time for the negotiations is extremely short as an agreement has yet to be ratified. Both sides wanted to redouble their efforts, said a British government spokesman. We will continue to work together intensively in the next few days, tweeted von der Leyen on Saturday after the balance sheet conversation. Johnson had told Sky News on Friday that he was still hoping for a deal. He indicated that a decision would be possible around the coming weekend.
The talks between the EU and Great Britain went very slowly for many months. In the meantime, London even left the negotiating table. Brussels had originally stated that an agreement had to be reached by the end of October so that a treaty could still be ratified. The deadline passed, but talks continued.
In a no-deal Brexit, the consequences would be massive: According to forecasts, thousands of trucks will jam because of border controls in the Dover area, and many shelves in supermarkets and pharmacies will be empty. The EU states would also be hit. Tens of thousands of jobs are at risk, recently warned the Federation of German Industries (BDI). Domestic political upheavals threaten in Great Britain. Scotland's drive for independence could only grow.
Brewers open to trading All-Star reliever Josh Hader? .
Now might be the peak of Hader’s trade value. For the Brewers, he might be a luxury they can no longer afford. Even at his most dominant, Hader maxed out at 2.7 bWAR during the regular season. There’s additional value for Hader’s role in the postseason, however, evidenced by his dominant run of 10 scoreless innings in the 2018 playoffs that played a major role in getting the Brewers to the NLCS. For an NL contender looking to balance to scales against the juggernaut Dodgers, a weapon like Hader could present a solution.
