    Default FTA with USA

    This is the type of thing that happens when you try to negotiate an FTA with the USA: US tells Kenya to publicly support Israel or forget free trade deal - The East African
    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.

    As Corbyn is out of the way at least this is not going to be a problem

    The USA's economy is over 200 times bigger than Kenya. Hardly a 'negotiation'!

    The US can pretty much do what they want and include any conditions they want, like the Israel one in this example. There's only one country that really has any economic leverage at all with the US and that's China and even they are being bullied by Trump at the moment.
