So this is the life after Brexit: a taster of the special relationship and phenomenal trade deals that await after the UK after Brexit. Or will the UK be a disrespected nation subjected to the bullying behaviours of more stable and powerful economies like the US. The lack of respect shown towards Britain’s ambassador to the US more likely indicates the latter. As our position becomes one of beggar looking for trade deals anywhere we can find them ,we should be mindful that the Eagle of the US may actually be a vulture waiting to pick over the bones of the UK as it struggles along outside the EU. Without negotiating power or powerful friends we could find that the terms of any special relationships may be neither quite as favourable nor mutual beneficial or as respectful as we first naively believed.
