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

Quote:
The only reason Trump is happy about this, is that he can squeeze GB for a massively US-favourable trade deal now. A daft wee island of 60m desperate for some quick wins has no negotiating power against the US behemoth.
You've hit the nail on the head.

The Trump cabinet is specifically made up of people that he believes are the best deal makers for America. The UK, by comparison, is well known to be ridiculously short of trained negotiators for Brexit, relies on them being taken from the Civil Service (who can't negotiate their way out of a paper bag), and up against Trump et al, the UK is screwed. Welcome to 4+yrs of being Trump's whiny little biatch.

I think there's more to it than that, remember Trump's also going to pull the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Bilaterals are the way forward.
More to what exactly? Ther UK's going to be a nasty little piece jumping out of bed with Europe and into bed with Trump.
