Just so I’m clear, how much should our brave Brexit negotiators be offering Michel & co at this moment?
£80 Billion? £100 Billion? Will that represent good value for some as yet unspecified trading arrangement? How exactly should the Irish border work? Principled answers only please.
I heard an interviewer this morning asking some Labour spokesperson what their Brexit ‘plan’ was as if a quick response covering, trade, agriculture, fisheries, law, research, aviation, security and all of the other complexities could be trotted out in some glib one sentence sound bite.
As a separate issue how do our arms deals with the Saudi work? I thought individual EU members couldn’t negotiate such deals outside the bloc. But we, the French, the Swedes etc all seem to manage it.
