    Well that's interesting...

    If you're right, then you're suggesting that the EU has no power over individual countries, corporates, or individuals.

    Maybe then you could tell us what quitters were worried about all along then?

    Indeed

    "In a few months, the WTO is expected to set out the level of punitive tariffs the EU can impose on US imports, possibly amounting to several billion dollars, in retaliation for subsidies that led to lost sales for Airbus."

    But the UK on it's own has managed to secure how much against foreign corporates?

    So, the WTO is telling the EU what it can do? Who’s the daddy!

    It cannot unite because does not have a homogenous people anymore, due to mass immigration. You will get disunity in any country that has opened its borders.

    You can't have a good conspiracy theory without involving the Russians.

    Mass immigration lol. Straight from the DM playbook. The UK has always been a beneficiary of immigrants, since we were able to build boats.

    Regardless. Of those two, more than a few on here seemed to be banging on about what a bunch of worthless tossers the WTO are and here the EU is, waiting for permission from those WTO tossers to be able do something. Just saying......

    So - the UK either has to abide by EU rules and WTO rules or, after leaving the EU, WTO rules or did you want the UK to leave the world as well.

    Take back control - just saying...

    Comrade Noseall the key word in "mass immigration" is "mass". You are pretending to know less than you do. Naughty!

    Ah. You mean the Normans.

    I agree they should be chucked out but I fear it is too late.

    You actually think immigration has anything to do with it? Utterly amazing.
