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

Especially with the US dictating UK polices and actions that increase the likelihood of the UK becoming embroiled in unnecessary US generated conflicts.

Exactly, only the naive would think that there would be a trade deal without any policy obligations, and those obligations will not do the UK any favours.

Before the ink is dry on brexit, the UK will be under pressure to distance itself from EU policy on Iran.

it's very rare that countries make trade deals sector by sector, extremely rare and mainly happen only when one of the countries is desperate for a deal

Maybe it's an option to take into consideration  for bilateral agreements when signatures can be taken back conveniently - whatever the reason..

And for those thinking concluding trade deals post brexit is going to be a snap, consider these 2 headlines:

Japan and EU expected to sign trade deal after breakthrough in talks

Brexit: Japan trade deal will not be ready by deadline

Trump has stated that any UK/US trade deal is contingent on the UK shelving changes to the tax laws that will require online US companies to pay taxes in the UK (at the point of delivery).

 

Essentially dictating to the UK what UK tax laws should be.

understand: america first UK somewhere down the line.....a logic to a country who has no industrial base anymore ...a weaker army...and a more weaker currency....only cash gamblers that will soon move to frankfurt....but an oversupply of islamic radicals...good luck...but boris is around for help, isnt he ?

Quite, and not just in that direction.

The UK is already in trouble with the EU over Chinese goods, if they go into trade negotiations with the Chinese it is highly likely they will run into more trouble with the EU.

Those that voted to leave did so under the impression it was all going to be very easy.

Not at all, the U.K. has a direct say in EU taxation laws and treaties.

 

Though you are correct insomuch as the whole point of Brexit is to protect the UK’s hyper wealthy from the the Common Consolidated Tax Base and other EU anti tax evasion measures.

 

It is to be noted that taxes collected under the CCTB and other tax evasion measures are remitted to the member nations where the taxes are evaded, not to the EU.

 

Hence it is the hyper wealthy who provided the financial backing for Brexit.

 

Can’t be doing with paying taxes, that’s simply not on.

As a member of the EU, the U.K's "say" can be overruled by QMV but it has to accept EU tax laws.

 

If you really think that Brexit was voted for by the hyper-wealthy, then why did the known "wealthy" areas of London and the SE vote remain? Such nonsense.

Boris Johnson has hit out at what he described as a “terrible collaboration” between MPs and the EU trying to block Brexit,...

 

It's not me it's them..... the easy way out

I've noticed how far the conversation has drifted from Bolton's promise to support the UK for a trade deal with the USA. Maybe that's because of the uncomfortable fact (at least to Brexiters) that it's very unlikely to be enacted?

 

Well that and the cold hard fact that Bolton has no authority over US trade agreements.

 

The idea that his visit to Johnson has anything to do with trade is bare faced hogwash.
