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

I thought we were talking about Brussels' amazing ability to negotiate deals that are good for British industry. I don't think a deal that wipes out a large part of the British automobile industry qualifies there. It's definitely not putting the bar very high for when Britain needs to negotiate its own deals.
No, not Brussels
It is pejorative to keep writing Brussels when you mean the EU.

We were talking about the ability of the EU to use its huge market to leverage free trade deals.

Incidentally, the Japan deal included dropping the Japanese 30% duty on Cheddar which might help British industry assuming Cheddar is still made in UK?

The US makes the most Cheddar cheese but would not benefit from this agreement.
