Brexit : The UK is SO screwed in negotiating trade deals. MPs Vote to Give Up Control.

MPs Vote to Give Up Control Over Trade Deals

In parliament last night, MPs were given the opportunity to insist that they have oversight over all of our brexit trade deals, and a vote on the final agreement. They turned down the opportunity. Ironically, it was the pro-Brexit MPs who voted to give up control over our trade deals, which means they can own the collapse of British jobs that it will cause.

So essentially, Johnson can agree to anything, to get a trade deal, and the details of the deal can't be divulged for 5 years, or when the new rules come into operation.

So Trump can screw the hell out of the UK in trade negotiations (which he will), but it can't take effect until after the end of the EU Withdrawal agreement at the end of the year, by which time Trump will hopefully have lost.

In Lieu of Fun, Episode 87: Rick Wilson ..... Highly Recommended

Seriously good discussion.

BBC reporter with a great bit of kindness.

This BBC reporter was interviewing a family of migrant workers.

They'd been walking for days just to get home.

During the interview, he saw the man had no shoes. So he took off his own ó and gave them to him.
