I have no idea what this has got to do with Brexit specifically, tbh. Please enlighten us.
Surely the EU would have been doing this anyway, had the UK chopped its own arm off or not..
China was consolidating its position long before Brexit, and only now are the EU and the US noticing and trying to play catch-up before WWIII really kicks off. The UK is even further behind, thanks to our "lord of the flies" "I don't care if I turn the whole island into dogshit, so long as I am king of the dogshit" "sovereign" government.
