Re: Latest from the PM
Agree that comparing the UK to Australia is daft.
Its not about Business, they know nothing of Business especially trade and they don't care about Business.
This is cargo cult'ing at its worst.
As for Australia, NZ is 2.8 of exports, the USA 4%, a paltry amount.
There is only one country relevant to Australia:
China is 40% a huge amount for one country.
You have to add the values of the next 8 Export countries to get even close to that.
Where China goes Australia goes. For good and bad.
The UK has exports to the US of 15%, Germany 9.9%, France 6.7%, Netherlands 6%, Ireland 6%.
Much more evenly balanced but of course just about ready to tell its nearest free trade area thanks but no thanks.
However there will be Portaloo's in Farage Park, maybe they could lay some music on, deckchairs, that kind of thing I can hear it now 'Who do you think you are kidding ~~~~~' wafting over the muddy fields
