Return of the Grey Men.

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:

  • Liam Fox
  • Boris Johnson
  • Priti Patel.

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?
