At the moment, relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union are governed by transitional norms. In fact, cooperation remains on the terms preceding Brexit, however, the transition period expires already in 2020.
Until then, the parties must come to a long-term agreement. Otherwise, Britain will leave the EU without a deal, which will hit its economy.

Moreover, Boris Johnson demonstrates that he does not intend to delay the process, despite the negative consequences.
