    ....a juicy trade deal with the US

    China, U.S. Teams Agree to Work to Implement Trade Deal

    Meanwhile the UK will play bad cop, cutting off trading ties.

    Trade deal with Turkey on PPE - we know how to negotiate. Keep the change guys, we'll accept a voucher instead of refund.

    If you have ever bought a sealed box of Turkish Delight in Turkey, you will have learnt your lesson. As my Turkish friend said, "you are lucky to get anything".

    Why would you buy a sealed box?

    They sell lose weight and sealed (as in shrink-wrap)

    As it should be and not 90% packing inside...


    And then there is the shoe brush scam...



    When the unsuspecting victim picks up the brush and hands it back to the show shine guy, the show shine guy is very appreciative and offers to clean your shoes for being so nice. Sixty seconds later, the shoeshine guy proceeds to tell you that you owe him £50 because he just cleaned your shoes and his wife is in hospital etc etc

    Sorry my point is as a tourist everyone rips you off where ever you go in the world, so unless you are buying from the airport at the last minute you make sure you can easily check everything you buy.
