Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

From the first paragraph in the first link "Since Friday, however, the tune has changed and he [Obama] assured the special relationship between the countries hasnít suffered. He hasnít mentioned queues (a British word that raised suspicions it was a Remain campaign plant) since.
This is untrue; The White House has restated its position that Britain would be at the back of the queue when it comes to making trade deals with the US, in the wake of the Brexit vote.

He refers to Obama. The link refers to a Whitehouse spokesman.

So they are both true.

Clearly Obama has not re-iterated and instead has left a spokesman to 'maintain face'.

Let's see how things go. I would expect that the UK could conclude a deal with the US faster than the EU could.
