Our Government of happy Brexiteers has received good news and bad news this week. The good news is that a new, proud, independent and sovereign UK has a trade deal with Japan ready to go. The bad news is that, just to underscore the UK’s lesser status as a former EU member state, it’s not as good a deal as the EU-Japan one we could have had if we’d remained in the EU. And it is the Japanese who are dictating terms.told readers “British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and his Japanese counterpart agreed Saturday to seek an 'ambitious, high standard' trade accord matching Japan's agreement with the European Union”. No need to worry, we would do just as well outside the EU.announced that “TRADE talks with Japan will begin within days after the UK published its negotiating objectives tonight. Trade Secretary Liz Truss said Britain’s textiles, clothing and professional and financial services industries will be the biggest winners of a bumper free trade deal with Japan”. Brexit? No problem!has reported. “Japan has given Britain just six weeks to sign up to a post-Brexit trade deal or face disruption to its imports and exports”. Sign up by the end of July, take it or leave it. And there was more.
You believe congenital liars like Bozo, you end up getting screwed. No change there, then.
