Boris v Obama

I didn’t expect myself to be on the side of London’s lovable moptop mayor in this one, but how dare the US president threaten to put us at the back of the queue for trade agreements should we leave the EU?  Somehow I can’t imagine the US selling their sovereignty to join a North American federation with Canada and Mexico (let alone the rest of the continent of America).  Free borders with their southern neighbours?  I don’t think so.

What do the USA export to us anyway, apart from re-runs of Frasier?

I hope the Queen gives him a piece of her mind before he goes home.  And stops the USA receiving Downton Abbey.

  1. They already sold their sovereignty. The US is the oldest federation there is, and a pretty successful one at that. Louisiana and a whole bunch of other states were once French!
    He is just stating the obvious really. Turn it around, would the UK prioritise negotiating a deal with the USA or with Ecuador?

  2. True, individual states gave up their independence. They’ve done all right though, eh?!
