Trump adviser Bolton: U.S. would enthusiastically support a UK choice for no-deal Brexit

Recommended Posts

Of coarse the US would love to do a trade deal with the UK when we are desperate, but the terms will favour the US...

 

If anyone has any doubts just recall the trade deal struck up with Churchill in the early 40's when we were desperate and the US had us over a barrel, took us 62 years to pay it off.

Bolton said Britain and the United States could agree trade deals on a sector-by-sector basis, leaving more difficult areas in the trading relationship until later.

 

He said the ultimate aim was a comprehensive trade deal, but highlighted that financial services could be one of the more difficult industries to reach an agreement on.

555 looking forward seeing them trying to make a deal without including the NHS, medicaments, etc

The trouble is any trade deal between the US and UK is very unlikely to be in the UK's interests.

The US will want access to the NHS which will be disastrous for healthcare in the UK.

UK would be forced to accept American food and I for one do not want low quality US food imports destroying UK farming.

Remember....America 1st is what it's all about and that would be guaranteed to apply to any US/UK trade deal too.

Bizarre post. Could you explain why any trade deal with the US would a) guarantee visa-free movement of people, and the right for Americans to avail themselves of our NHS? 

... and the right for Americans to avail themselves of our NHS? 

 

I think he means the bloated out of control US health industry will infect the UK's NHS and degrade the quality of health care. "Here, you need this $1000 bee sting med, not that $2 one".

No one wants to rely on Trump; American diplomacy is in tatters. The UK will be fine November 1st.

Free trade agreement is great for the UK. But, what's in it for the United States. The UK doesn't really have anything to offer as far as exports to the U.S. is concerned. In reality, what does the UK have that the U.S. needs?

you may not want to but it's all about money so you'll have to, it wont just be about trade you will be caught up in all sorts of wild military adventures that are doomed to failure, overspend on American military hardware and have to support American foreign policy.

Why would Bolton and Trump love a no deal exit? A starving person doesn't have much leverage when negotiating price of bread perhaps?

If you read the article, it says US is willing to negotiate now (something May refused to do) before Brexit is even a done deal, which would mean the US is voluntarily surrendering their potential leverage. Trump is an Anglophile. His mother instilled in him a deep love and affection for the Queen. Brits do not deserve it, but they are going to be offered a fair deal.

Bases for missiles and a flunky that will be used, oftimes as a proxy, in some dubious small military adventures with wide ranging consequences if they go wrong so that the US has clean hands, the Europeans don't do his bidding so easily.

In other words they are sovereign and won't do what he tells them (but the UK will, or else)
