LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative party has a 15 percentage-point lead over the opposition Labour Party, according to a poll published on Saturday, ahead of a possible national election aimed at breaking the impasse over Brexit.

 

The Conservatives garnered 37% in the Opinium poll for the center-left Observer newspaper, while Labour took 22%.

That is a good idea. But is it realistic?

I.e. if the UK wants to do a trade deal with the USA how much of that sovereignty will you have to give up to get a deal?

 

None. But if you want to be America's friend, in the current climate, you have to support them. 

 

The EU will likely behave very similarly if the increased move towards federal status happens.

The UK got it's financial status from the days when commodities etc were traded in pounds . Before that was handed to the USA at Bretton Woods .
