I have been toldmany times that the transition negotiations would be relatively straightforward and agreed by March - allowing plenty of time to scope out what the future relationship might look like. Here are the key hurdles that could upset the next two stages in negotiations.
European Union diplomats say the aim is to agree a swift deal on a transition period.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was a vocal opponent of the U.K.'s exit from the bloc and has repeatedly sought reassurance about its effects on Japanese companies operating in Britain, which include giant carmakers Nissan and Honda. The outcome of that would be a bigger "Brexit bill".
"Cross Whitehall Briefing", the report claims that irrespective of the deal clinched between London and Brussels, UK's economic growth will slow down outside the European Union. It however left room for "appropriate adaptation".
The UK will seek talks with other countries on free trade deals, though the Commission insists that these can not be signed until the transition period is over.
But UK will not have any say over these rules.
"Once again, I see a new sign of the strong and honest unity of the 27 member states in" agreeing on the directives, said Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator. That is a sine qua non condition for progress in this second phase.
