Excellent analysis by Andrew Lilico on the likelihood of a Trump deal with the UK.
Carrying on from yesterday’s discussion, it is really going to upset the Left when we get a Trump deal. Moreover, it is also really going to upset the EU as this will be an example of the UK benefitting from Brexit.
Also, Nicola Sturgeon will be in full force for a whole year about not doing a deal with the Orange One, talking her own book for the same reasons.
There are only 2 potential downsides:
1 – Trump makes a tough negotiator and maybe the deal in services won’t be so good, he will want healthcare in it and that will send the UK with our NHS touchstone into meltdown.
2- The EU will hate us so much they wont negotiate on Article 50 and so we will have a tough tie re-creating our space in the world from 2019 onwards which will be a slight drag on the economy and altogether unnecessary.
At least the above two will be mutually exclusive.
