Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform think-tank, said it was unrealistic to expect the two sides to agree a new strategic forum so soon after the UK left the bloc but added that it was a worthy long-term goal. “It is only a few months since the Windsor deal was signed and it has not yet been fully implemented. So while trust levels are rising, it is from an extremely low level,” he said.
