We (the UK) are leaving the EU by the end of January. After that we will not be negotiating as supplicants.

That is a matter of opinion, of course. You could as easily say we had more power and influence before we finally sign the withdrawal agreement, but will be supplicants to get a good deal afterwards. It is a matter of belief which party needs a trade deal more.
