Week Ahead - OPEC & Brexit In Focus
Let's start with Brexit.
The clock is ticking down and the (latest) deadline looms.
It's all politics as usual.
Fishing dominates the headlines even though it accounts for a tiny portion of the respective economies.
It's all about the 'optics'. The symbolism.
Britain has taken back control, and regained sovereignty over British waters, no longer will we be dictated to by faceless bureaucrats in Brussels... and so on.
Fishing is easily understood, so that's where the media focus is.
The level playing field, state aid, and the legal jurisdictions to enforce any agreement reached are the real issues to overcome.
