interjection

' It was more like a give it or take it ultimatum.'

you mean take it or leave it?

'So now, it's basically a choice of being screwed over by the EU... Or screwing yourselves over, on your own terms.'

no, World Trade Organisation terms (default kick-in after 29th, article 50 cessation) seems an appropriate platform to pick oneself up from, dust off and carry on. a perfect platform to build future mutual reciprocations Globally and unshackled.

Below is a list of countries that just trade under WTO rules.















.


Oh how clever.

China is the largest trader in the world and will likely soon be the world's largest economy. They trade through WTO exclusively, barring a handful of free trade deals she has made with other countries.


www.export.gov...


Okay and which trade union exactly is China a part of again?


Moving goal posts? China does not just trade under WTO rules.

Yes but the point is that it's not using WTO trade rules.

ooo there is also the China-Australia free trade agreement.

The EU won't offer a good deal since they are using Brexit as a way to blackmail other countries who might think of daring to defy the unelected oligarchical EU leadership.



Blackmail?
Do you really think that small countries such as Slovenia, Hungary, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic etc can financially compete on their own against USA, Russia, China and India?! Please tell me how its possible?!


So you think smaller countries should be totally subject to foreign overlords?

I hate to tell you but the Roman Empire died 476 AD.

Okay well my bad I misunderstood the point of your argument.

Mauritania of course should not be an example to follow for post-Brexit British trade relations.

Or anything for that matter.

And they seem to be the only state that only uses WTO rules and after March 29 the UK will be joining them, perhaps we could foster our own trade agreement with them for a start.

Somehow I think the British Economy is more inviting for the formation of trade relations than a North African Slaver State under International Sanction for repeated human rights violations.

Britain will not crash and burn come March 29th.

I know that a lot of big firms in London have been buying up office space in Europe because under a no deal they would need to move very fast. Its all to do with the pass-porting laws that finance groups use, under a no deal we would lose those pass-porting rights and they would need to move very quick. You would see a massive shift of wealth from the City of London being spread out through Europe.

Its at this point that my eyes start glazing over and my interest level diminishes to zero in a matter of seconds.

Same old arguments we've listened to and read from all sides and very, very little new or constructive.

I'm going to join the dirty unwashed, watch #e TV and research into The Mandela Effect with the hope that I'll be able to find a timeline without Brexit.

All with the assistance of beer....and things.


Love it!

Well that is certainly and one of the reasons I think the country was wrong to adopt neoliberal economics and build an economy solely around financial services that funnel money from the country into the executives of international corporations.

I do not think an exploitative and corrupt business class is reason we should shackle ourselves to an increasingly authoritarian political union.

London however is not the entire country and I would appreciate the government a lot more if they would figure that out but that's a long shot at best.
