Britain eyes early free trade pact with Australia after leaving EU

Exactly. That was my whole point. Perhaps read up on the comments before firing up the arguing machine? I'll help you out:

 

In case it's unclear (apparently it is), my opinion is that you can trade regardless of geographical separation. Judging by the Australian free trade agreements, the people of Australia agree. Apparently, @CliffH disagrees.

Ah, okay gotchya.

 

So dumping your most natural, closest and seamless trading links with the EU (which via you had trade access to other FTAs - eg EU-Canada - where your combined negotiating power gave you access countries that Australia could have ever dreamed of) is the way to go, so you can venture off to negotiate a bunch of half arsed and partial 'free' trade agreements with countries on the other side of the world. 

 

Australia had no choice but to go far and wide. You did. But it is a choice, and it has been made.

You really are abusive, stop greeting and face the facts we are leaving, it was a democratic decision, sorry it has upset you so much.

Start posting in an amicable manner and you may get amicable replys.

Abusive?

Nah thats the remit of Brexiteers. Like calling people who think Brexit is a bad idea traitors.

Slogans and insults. Its all you guys can manage.

It's a free world. Judging by YOUR principles I could open a convenience store across the street from where you live and then blame you for making "half arsed and partial decision" when you head down to Tesco's for groceries.

 

But keep chasing your windmills, I think you're doing a great job at that. :mfr_closed1:

Yes and if you opened a convenience store you would think it was a good idea to ban half your customers and try and get your goods from a wholesaler thousands of miles away rather than the one next door.

No chasing windmills for me.

Yes, that's the EU principle. Thanks for pointing it out. 

In what way is that the Eu's principle?

Do tell.

Fortunately im not from La Mancha. If it’s Spanish we are talking about, then I’m a bit of a Goya fan.
 

Saturn eating his children seems quite apt of what I’m seeing.

But they do >60% of trade with the rest of the UK which is right on their doorstep. Why mess with that? If you work out the answer, you'll get a better idea of why the UK voted to leave the EU.
