Surprise, surprise this is not actually true. The UK has to date signed post Brexit trade deals with a handful of countries eg Switzerland (11th Feb) and Chile (30 Jan). The UK also has "mutual recognition agreements" with the USA, Australia and NZ.
The difficulty the UK faces re new trade agreements is that at the moment no one knows if there will be a hard or soft exit from the EU, or if the exit will be postponed (or not even happen at all). So trying to organise trade deals when there is so much uncertainty is very difficult.
PS - Seeing as Britain isn't actually a country it would be some feat for it to be able to have any trade deals with anyone.
The UK held a referendum and the people voted (yes it was a peoples vote) to leave the EU. She is therefore honour bound to respect the outcome of a democratic vote.
What are your sources? The latest figures I can find (for the last quarter of 2018) shows that the UK's growth rate (1.3) is infact higher
than France (0.90) and Germany (0.60)
You make that sound as if it's a bad thing!
Firstly, there is NOTHING to indicate that the UK will lose Gibraltar post Brexit.
Secondly, the simple reality of being in a democracy means that minority groups often have their interests ignored. This for example has been happening to the Scots. Welsh and Irish/Northern Irish for as long as the UK has existed.
Wow, scare mongering at an all new level. It's absurd to think that the UK would surrender the Falklands for the sake of a trade deal.
"Pretty certain Westminster would sell the Falklanders out without batting an eyelid."
I could debunk every one of those arguments above but that would mean doing the research on every point.
If you lived here you'd fit right in with Yaxley-Lennon or Katie Holmes and the rest of the Kipper nutjobs. Frankly, you're not worth it.
F'rinstance though, on the point of the growth figures it was revealed that the government subtly tweaked the figures put out to the media to make them look better than they were. They reported Britain's annual growth at the end of the fourth quarter (Q4), but listed other countries at the end of Q3, or even Q2 to make them look worse than Britain's. They got caught on that one. When all Q4 figures were taken into account, it produced the report I described in my post.
Like I said.... you're not here. You don't have a clue what's going on.
Sadly, you don't have the full picture. Forgive me for pointing out the glaringly obvious, but I doubt you're getting the kind of almost non-stop 24 hour bombardment of coverage that we're getting here.
And none of it's good.
So far this week, 8 Labour Party MP's and 3 Conservatives have resigned from their party and formed an Independent Group. More are expected to do so.
I suppose you'd say it's all par for the course and perfectly normal.
These 11 MP's - who have formed a group dedicated to forcing a second referendum - now outnumber the 10 DUP MP's that are propping up the government (at a cost of £1 billion of taxpayers money that May used as a bribe to buy their votes).
Westminster right now is a massive numbers game. A second meaningful vote is due soon and if the Theresa May "Deal" is voted down, the 11 will support the Yvette Cooper amendment to the Brexit Act which will allow for a second referendum in the event of a "No Deal" Brexit. Not long ago it was absolutely off the table, but now it's being seriously considered. The numbers aren't there yet, but they're changing day by day.
May is off to the Middle East this week to try to persuade the EU to make concessions on the backstop and Junker has as good as told her not to bother turning up. What part of "There will be no further discussion on the Departure Agreement" doesn't she understand...?
You are trotting out the same tired old arguments that have been utterly discredited here months ago. You're way behind the times, have no real understanding of what is going on and all you're doing is parroting the line being pushed by the extreme hard-right wing factions in UKIP.
You're out of your depth here.
