Yes, really


I was curious to see, with just a few hours left till the Brexit transition period ends, quite how BBC Radio 4's Six O'Clock News would mark the approaching momentous moment. 

Would they opt for a positive angle, a neutral angle or a negative angle? 

I expected negative of course, and got it:

As the Brexit transition period comes to an end tonight, those trading goods between the UK and the EU are looking nervously to the future. The trade deal with the EU, which has signed into law last night, ensures there will be no tariffs or quotas but many businesses and hauliers are concerned that they will have to file new paperwork. Our transport correspondent Caroline Davies has been talking to some of them some of them. [Ed - Of course she has!]

Let's remember this moment too: 

This is how BBC Radio 4 chose to mark this historic day - by sticking with what it's been doing, relentlessly, for four and a half very long years, and focusing only on the negative side as far as Brexit is concerned.
