How will the UK- TPP deal affect the UK rejoining the EU? Can a country be in both the EU and another trade block?

Don't think this will be the main barrier to rejoining the UK, that's more no political desire on either side.

Nothing says it's impossible but makes it more difficult in theory. None of the UK rules, laws or regulations seem to have been incompatible with CPTPP, so broadly compatible.

Most of the British public want to rejoin the EU, and the Labour party will probably hold a rejoin referendum some time after they win the 2024 election.
