Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The Americans know full well that the UK will be absolutely desperate for a trade agreement, and they will seek to take advantage of that. Nigel may have confidence that the governmentís negotiators will resist, for instance, the inclusion of some or all of our healthcare provision, or drastic increases in the cost of drugs from the US. There are many of us though who donít share that confidence, given the number of MPs who have vested interests in private healthcare and drug manufacturing businesses.
