This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 87%. (I'm a bot)

> Britain has joined the 11-member strong Asia-Pacific trade bloc that includes Japan and Australia after nearly two years of negotiations.

> Some trade experts said joining the CPTPP bloc would harm the UK's ability to rejoin the EU at a later date, arguing that harmonising trade rules with the CPTPP countries would drive a wedge between Brussels and London.

> Allowing secret courts to govern trade disputes between CPTPP members and the UK is expected to spark protests similar to those that helped scupper trade talks between the EU and Washington in 2016.

The EU and CPTPP are entirely different things. One is a trade organisation, the other is a supranational political bloc looking to make itself into a federated superstate.

EU - Supranational

CPTPP - Intergovernmental

There is a massive difference between the pair of them though. We could always just ignore that fact.
