My point proven, you cannot predict who voted what by pigeonholing. There was total polarisation throughout societal stereotypes.

There you have it.

Many NHS-employed customers and at least one lecturer are very sensible people!

Re: Not going well for Trade deals.

Hi

The EU have now concluded a Deal with Mexico.

98% of Trade Barriers gone.

Another one we will lose and have to try and renegotiate.

Re: Not going well for Trade deals.

Our PM is in Berlin at the moment trying to push along the current free trade talks with the EU.

The problem is that after minerals one of our main exports is agricultural products which scares the shit out of France and Italy (not to mention the recent fracas with the latter over tomatoes). Negotiations have been going on for 10 years so far and there is no early end in sight.

Australia is quite keen to get a trade agreement with the UK to start in 2021 which is the earliest you are allowed to have a trade agreement of your own and DFAT is actively encouraging the UK to join the TPP.
