The wall of lies and deceit is falling down.

Oh dear!

We are leaving EU with barrier free trade.

We will trade with the whole world, especially US, our greatest ally.

The US is in totally protectionist mode. And is signed up to NAFTA but wants to dissolve it.

Brexit did not cause this - as if any cunt could think anyone else meant that - but our future after Brexit will be affected by this World Trade Organisation type deal.

It's not as if you're even an entrepreneur, chinky, let alone a great philosopher.

Trade is reciprocal, we'll be strong enough to match tariffs or reduce tariffs as required.

Do you mean, Ted, because our economy is incredibly strong and robust? Are you sure?

Trade isn't reciprocal with the US - they invest billions more into the UK economy than the UK sells and invests back. The ratio is arguably about 25:1.

If the US/Trump chooses to impose tariffs, there is nothing that the UK can do back, without the situation getting far worse. Trump was elected on protecting US industry and the promise to apply tariffs to foreign trade (Clinton was the opposite, being a disciple of free trade), so it's not a surprise. What is a surprise is that Trump-supporting British actually thought he'd give a monkeys chuff about the UK.

In the UK's favour, Macron seems to have finally come clean to his electorate and imposing austerity across the board and talking about a EU-wide financial tax, which will no doubt have an exemption for French banks. My snide satisfaction of seeing Trump supporters finally coming to realisation is matched by seeing those 'We love Macron' Europeans also waking up.
