This has been openly discussed for months. We need a World class team of negotiators. Currently, we have the equivalent of Yeovil Town with a sloping pitch.

That is all very true but you are two steps too far down the road!

Before anybody can start negotiating for the UK they need to know what is the UK position; UK will be like a new country.

For example FTAs usually include product and quality standards; so for the UK FTA planned with Australia then will UK stay with the EU standards and commit to following them in future?
Or use Australian standards (if they exist?) which might require UK manufacturers to start new production lines?
Or use not yet written UK standards? Who would commit to unknown standards that require Australian manufacturers to start new production lines??

Or for services provision will the negotiators be allowed to commit to automatically providing visas to the essential people supplying services?
