    Default Trade Agreement

    If the UK can leave the EU with 'No Deal' and simply trade with the EU on WTO terms because they don't need a trade agreement with the the EU, then why can't the UK trade happily all around the world on those same rules rather than wasting time and money on negotiating trade deals with Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, etc.?

    What is the point of Liz Truss and her department if "falling back on WTO rules" won't cause the UK any problems?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Exactly, interesting how they make a big thing about all these new trade deals and WTO is more or less business as usual with the EU.

    Why not get out of the WTO as well?

    It's these other Empire 2.0 countries clamouring for a trade deal with the UK, so they can get preferential access to the UK's jam, tea and biscuit exports.

    I think it's more HCL, Infosys, Tata,Wipro, Tech Mahindra, etc getting easier access to the UK market to export their drones
