Let's first see if some kind of an agreement will be struck by the end of the year.
The WTO solution is the last and worst but let's not run ahead of ourselves.

It seems to me that those customers will flock to the London financial centre by themselves.

That is a good question.
I see in the news that every single measure that the Boris administration implements is criticised by the remaining remainers.
The passports will be blue instead of burgundy... OOOh Oy vey very bad.
Low-level immigration will be stopped..... OOOh Oy vey very very bad.
Those are all single issues.
I just seized on the fishing rights question because even before the real negotiations began the EU Whales already mentioned that the fishing rights should remain untouched.
I personally consider the fishing rights important because in an age of dwindling natural resources, fish are a significant part of people's nutrition and for the UK, a natural wealth. Iceland went to war with the UK over fishing rights not so long ago. It is not a small matter.
