Dominic Raab says Brexit deal ‘there for the taking’ despite reports of only 30-40% chance

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Dominic Raab says Brexit deal ‘there for the taking’ despite reports of only 30-40% chance” – below is their description.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called this week the “moment of reckoning” in Brexit negotiations, despite reports that Downing Street thinks the chances of getting a deal are only 30 to 40%. When asked why the government hasn’t introduced COVID-19 testing at airports, he said: “The reason we can’t introduce testing reliably at airports is because the success rate is lower than one in ten”. He said the measure wouldn’t be a “silver bullet” and quarantine measures can’t be eased “until we’ve got a safe system to allow it”.
