      What is needed is a club, of countries, who mutually gain from trading as a single block, to make better trade deals with the rest of the world.
      One with a diverse set of countries that are geographically proximate.
      With a common culture and history.

      Oh. hang on...
      See You Next Tuesday

            nah. When the Dear Leader takes over we'll buy our petrol from Venezuela at prices guaranteed to facilitate the next stages of the revolution Comrades.

              It's Johnny Foreigner's fault. Send 40 gunboats.

              Liam Fox, the international trade secretary, has said that other countries are to blame for the fact that the UK does not have alternative trade deals ready by 29 March to replace the existing 40 EU ones that will lapse if the UK leaves without a deal. Asked about this revelation in today’s Financial Times (see 10.57am), he said:

              [The agreements are] not just dependent on the UK. Our side is ready. It is largely dependent on whether other countries believe that there will be no deal, and are willing to put the work into the preparations.

                I said that earlier and you accused me of having a tiny brain. Does that mean we're both in the tiny brain club? Please say it ain't so...
                His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

                  OG is in the tiny two brain club according to his misses.
                  "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

                  I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

                    Do you think the UK probably is leaving in March?
