SmileySmith: you're right to be worried that after months in the job, our trade minister is essentially clueless on key facts but the worse will not come to the worst. By the time we exit, in some 2.5 years time, the Government will have got past the rhetoric and will be dealing with the reality of global trade not least because Ministers won't be doing the negotiating and won't be poring over every detail. And my bet is that we will not fall back to rely on WTO rules alone (although we'll still have to agree new schedules as a non-EU member).
