“setting off for the fairytale never-never land of buccaneering neo-Elizabethan independence – a Trump-like mirage of “Global Britain” that would rapidly collapse into a putrid reality of being Greater Cyprus with missiles.”

Oooowww . . . she husks (she’s been taught to Husk) on seeing the EU treats bag being slowly edged away from her – “if I offer them some sweeties, maybe?”
The sweetie she has in mind is “maintain security co-operation with the eu”.
She keeps just missing the target doesn’t she? Conservatives locked in their bubble of themselves, London-centric, big-business-friendly, money, money, money – never life, life, life.
So – if the eu doesn’t feel like listening to more of the self-deluded drivel from the Conservatives, we’ll stop co-operating with security?
Funny meetings going, featuring tricky blokes, sat around together plotting – (remember Thatcher’s disposal weeks)?
It all seems a bit outlandish, me saying this – until you hear just who it is that’s having this odd, away from everyday business meeting:
Anyway, presuming they really are talking about trade agreements (why? On their own) – I thought I’d add here a thought on what they’ve been saying.
Radio 4 reported that one of these blokes
reminded the nation that we have no trade deals with America, or Australia or New Zealand.
Simplistic view that I have – I thought these places were, like
a long, long way away?
Australia (or New Zealand) by sea 11, or 12 THOUSAND miles.
USA – about 3000 miles.
So we’re going to use Container ships for this trade – what a giant leap forward, in this 21st Century: ship more crap around the planet.
That’s the best we’ve got to look forward to, post-Brexit is it?
