    Out of interest, which trade deals aren't you happy with at the moment and what specifically about them would you want to change?

      No thanks. That isn't what I or most of the other leavers voted for. I want us to be free to set our own trade deals with other countries without any restrictions.
      Which countries do you think will trade with us without any restrictions?

      Japan - want to trade with us, in return for dropping visa requirements.
      USA - have already slapped a 25% surcharge on steel.

      The WTO rules on international trade, so we still have to abide by their rules.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!

      Generally I don't like the fact the EU can overrule British law and British judgements.

      But if you want some specifics, off the top of my head:

      Free movement of labour law
      The right to be forgotten rule
      Child benefit for migrant workers
      Working time directive
      Fisheries policy
      VAT on energy bills law
      Climate change directive
      Diabetic motorists directive
      Off the top of your head, or cut and pasted from a Metro article?

      Like them or not, if Gove and Johnson had been in charge then we'd have had more bullish and less lillylivered approach to the process of leaving.
      How ironic, for both Gove and Johnson stood for leader after Cameron resigned, but both voluntarily left the race.

      It disgusts me that Johnson stood down in that contest, only to be savaging May now. She should call him out because at least she had the guts to take the job on two years ago, and it is a tribute to her tenacity that she herself hasn't jacked it in already.

      Yep that's the fella. I ignored a couple that don't bother me, including bananas.

      Johnson pulled out because Gove took his supporters to May. It was Gove that was gutless not Johnson. Johnson pulled out because he couldn't possibly win without Gove's support.

      This article displays such a misunderstanding of the WTO that I struggled to take it seriously as anything other than a piece of conceptual art.

      Given that the project involves making the whole of the nation materially worse off for the foreseable future, risks peace in Northern Ireland and could end the Union, I was expecting a more chunky list of concerns.

      Well then more fool him, because if Boris had been any sort of statesman he may have been able to convince his party that in order to deliver Brexit the government had to be led by a Brexiteer. Indeed, it was Cameron's reason for resigning in the first place.

      The Tories were deluding themselves when they appointed Remainer May to lead Brexit and she compounded that folly by appointing Remainer Hammond as Chancellor.

      Boris may eventually get his wish to be leader of the Tories, but they are now a moribund party who have alienated younger voters and run public services into the ground. Umunna would trounce Boris in a General Election.
