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

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.
There just isnt any good outcome for the Remain camp is there ? The Obama "back of the queue" line has been played like a broken record here on EF over this debate as one of those defining "you've stuffed it now" pieces of evidence.

Now we have someone who wants a trade agreement but - nope, wrong again - this is full on Bad News and make no mistake. the UK will be slaughtered at the negotiating table, we'll be paying them hand over fist because of x,y, z. What happens if we get a decent deal ? what then ? will it be the wrong kind of paper its being written on so the UK is stuffed ? maybe the weather could be used as a good example of why we should have stayed in Europe.

I mean come on, there are good signs ahead, why do you have to take the Worst Possible Scenario every single time ?
