Re: Wow, CHF to GBP exchange rate is pretty crazy at the moment...

>Do you have a source for saying that an EU trade deal has to be agreed within these two years?

yes, it's in my post that you quoted. just read it carefully.

>Post-Brexit UK needs terms of its own, and they have to be negotiated and approved by all 163 other WTO members, a process that the WTO’s director-general has called “tortuous”.

indeed. the UK was a founding member of GATT and the WTO and to find itself in this position shows not only the folly of surrendering key economic competences to the EU, but also the neglect and naivety of recent governments when it comes to these key elements of statehood. you'd have hoped that the mandarins of whitehall would have secured britain's position, but i suspect many succumbed to ideological capture by the siren call of the EU.
