“It is to be welcomed that the hard Brexit with all its negative side effects for the people in the EU as in the United Kingdom will not come in a few days. A cliff-edge solution, especially against the backdrop of the escalating Covid-19 crisis, would be simply irresponsible.
The European Parliament will put the negotiated result through its paces over the next few weeks and decide on it. The rules on competitive conditions and market access will be examined in particular so that no new loopholes for dumping practices and the undermining of tried and tested EU standards arise.
What remains: In times of growing insecurity around the world, the UK is leaving a strong community that practices solidarity and offers its members reliable protection. The SPD will do everything to prevent the European Union and Great Britain from drifting further apart. In the interests of the people on both sides of the English Channel, we want to ensure that the door remains open for a future British government that will find other decisions. “
