but the signing will take place after brexit and will need a 'little' revision

You can hold a big joint press conference once the agreement is finalized that would lock in everyone's positions. Let Trump go on and on about the "big, beautiful deal" he just put together. That would commit him even if he were inclined to screw the British over, which as I already pointed out, he won't because he has an irrational soft spot for them.

No surprises there. A no-deal UK would be exactly the kind of meek "partner" with very little bargaining power that The Donald loves to do business with.

 

If there's any such enthusiasm on the UK side as well, I predict it will be very short-lived once his terms become clear.

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.

There are already US bases in the UK. Lakenheath, Mildenhall, Fairford, to name but three. Greenham Common used to store cruise missiles but closed down a few years ago.

RAF Menwith Hill near Harrogate is totally run by the Americans.

Joint means you have to have two for that press conference. A finalized agreement takes place AFTER brexit so maybe the UK won't have much to shout about then when they have to kow tow to the reality of splendid isolation.

You say "maybe the UK won't have much to shout about" well maybe they just might, at the moment in time a lot of our citizens are doing nothing but pulling our country down, maybe this will be the impetus to get some belief in ourselves again, instead of this 'woe is me' all the time.

I take most of what is thrown at us from the Eumainers as either jealousy, because we have the nous to go it alone or sour grapes because they don't want us to leave, even if they say they do.

No surprise.  Trump's view all along has been that a UK out of the EU will be weaker in UK/US trade negotiations.  A no-deal-Brexit UK will be even weaker, can be offered truly extortionist trade terms and will be in no position to resist.

Really doesn't matter when it will be negotiated or signed, it will be based on 'no deal' The UK has nothing much to offer, terms and conditions will be as the USA pleases.

You can't see good in anything can you ?

 

I am sure both parties will be satisfied with the outcome.
