    It's ok, the UK is 'in talks' with loads of big players like...er...anyway, no one said brexit would be painless. Ree Smogg said that a mere 50+ years is all we need to see the benefits.

    Meanwhile - cancel Christmas.

    I think Biden wanted to see his lying face when he told him 'NO'.

    Wonder if Biden knew who Johnson was ?

    he did not seem to know what the Australian PMs name was ? Having just agreed a major international defence deal with the bloke :confused:

    which caused a spat with the French :ROFLMAO: and up set the Chinese

    probably an age thing ?

    At least Biden has always known about how many kids he has, unlike borisconi who has only just announced he has remembered he has six with another on the way...

    Silver spoon shortage looming?

    I’m not sure where you get the “Mr Bean moment” from that article…..are we engaging in a bit of whataboutery?

    Tory party are desperate for a USA deal…it means tons of money for them and their mates.

    "Johnson once regarded a bilateral free trade agreement with the US as a key Brexit win"

    "When Johnson was asked on Tuesday whether he still hoped to strike a free-trade agreement with the US by the time of the next general election, opening the way to lower tariffs and a closer economic relationship, he said “we’re going as fast as we can”, but declined to confirm whether it could be achieved before 2024."

    It probably ain't gonna happen ever!

    Brexiteers should be lining up to scream their disapproval...

    But they won't because they are still in 'cult mode'!

    Everyone is aware that it would be impossible to get such a deal from inside the EU?
    The point is that Boris is at least on the playing field despite being seen as bit cosy with Trump. The last Labour PM, never really managed that.

    Uncle Joe won't give BloJo anything worth a damn. He's seen as a mini-Trump, a pale shadow of the monsterous organism that's infected the Republican party. He did remind him that the Irish border would become a big problem if the Brexit protocol wasn't sorted out soon and without any concrete evidence it will be there's no chance of any trade deal.

    Biden hasn't forgotten about Boris comments about Obama. Biden will make Boris tag along by dangling a deal. Any deal would provide little benefit to the UK but would be sold at great fanfare and that's what it boils down to - sell the description but not the details as a Brexit win.
     
  16. If this is what the USA wanted to do to a market the size of the EU, imagine what they would do to one much smaller, run by an incompetent narcissist liar almost grovellingly desperate for a deal who could sign one without Parliamentary oversight and free from any challenges in court.

    Taking back control?

    Sovereignty?


    By closing the door in our face Biden has done us a huge favour.
