    Default US says a UK trade deal 'unlikely' before November

    Both have major issues with facts and the truth.

    God help us“


    America's top trade negotiator has said a deal with the UK is unlikely before the US presidential election in November.


    Ambassador Robert Lighthizer's comments come as the two countries embark on a second round of negotiations.


    Among the issues complicating the talks are disagreements over US agriculture exports and UK taxes on tech companies.


    "There are very, very fundamental issues that we have to come to grips with," Mr Lighthizer said.


    "I don't want anyone to think this is going to be a rollover."

    The two countries, which exchange £230bn worth of trade each year, started a second round of talks on Monday, after opening formal negotiations last month.


    Mr Lighthizer told Congress that the US is looking for a comprehensive deal - not a more limited agreement of the kind it has settled for in other instances.


    He said he expected to push for access to the UK market for American farmers, describing many of the standards that limit US food exports - such as those regarding chlorinated chicken - as "thinly veiled protectionism".


    "The United States has the best agriculture in the world. It has the safest, highest standards and I think we shouldn't confuse science with consumer preference," he said.


    On issues such as agriculture "this administration is not going to compromise", he said.

    It's OK. The UK is first in the deal for a US trade deal.

    The riots? Quite possibly the way they very quickly made the pallets of bricks available.
