Someone has been feeding some people a ton of bullshit and they've been swallowing it, which is worrying.

For anyone wishing to do the work for themselves, the EU has a Treaties office Database that you can use to search for all the agreements with any country. It's under maintenance right now, being bedtime etc, but here's a snapshot of just the EU-US deals.

It's astonishing how wrong you are. We have a ton of agreements with the above, and EU-Mercosur might actually happen next year (closest its ever been with Macri and Temer in power, and Venezuela suspended).

There's just no excuse for this ignorance. You can find out the facts with an internet search.

17% may be the total for the EU but I was posting that the total export of goods and services worldwide is 28% of GDP. So the EU is not insignificant.

To call this bizarre might be a tad too critical - what do you think.

Still, that’s what disaster capitalists do. They make money out of natural or human made disasters. They force people such as yourself to believe this madness is in your interest only to create havoc and then exploit it while you suffer the consequences and your small business dies.

Currently making something of an impact in the Brexit debate is an operation calling itself the Legatum Institute , based in fashionable W1 with the address of 11 Charles Street. According to its website, it was set up in 2009, but it does not seem to have been fully funded until recently. The Charity Commission records that the registered charity, the Legatum Institute Foundation, received over £4 million in income in 2015 - up from just under £3 million in 2014 and a mere £2,500 in 2013.

The picture one gets of Legatum, therefore, is of an exceptionally well-endowed think-tank with fingers in many pies and strongly networked with other think-tanks and the media. With offshore finance, though, this is redolent of foreign interference in UK politics, by a company which seems to attract dubious publicity , and critical appraisal .

The greatest concern, though, comes from reading the Legatum website . Having invested heavily in Russia and developing countries, the business speciality is moving into markets at times of crisis where assets are mispriced. With an eye for emerging trends and undervalued assets, it invested heavily in the telecommunications sector in Brazil, just after the country emerged from hyperinflation. It describes its own "investment heritage" in navigating through choppy markets, following the great financial crisis.
The company takes great pride in its investments in Hong Kong real estate, a market which investors had fled after the signing of the Sino-British Accord, an agreement that promised to give Hong Kong back to the Chinese government. It saw assets mispriced, and noted that "opportunities arise in times of crisis". This is a business style which has been described as " disaster capitalism ", which would benefit significantly from a hard Brexit .

Here, a comparison could be made with Hong Kong, where a similar situation might arise in a UK under the stress of a hard Brexit, where many traditional firms have run for cover, or relocated in the EU, leaving many assets under-priced. Looking also for opportunities arising from deregulation and further privatisation – especially in the NHS, with Legatum having considerable healthcare interests – hard Brexit presents multiple opportunities.

In this, the Legatum Institute seems to be paving the way for its "parent undertakings", its task assisted by useful fools and fellow travellers on the Tory right. What we have often characterised as incompetence, therefore, may be more sinister. There is money to be made out of a hard Brexit.

Brexit: Theresa May adviser warns EU withdrawal could be ‘the moment we finally failed as a great nation’ To view the link you have to Register or Login

'That I see as a very real prospect and it chills me to the bone,' Conservative Policy Forum chairman confesses

Brexit risks being “the moment we finally failed as a great nation”, Theresa May’s policy adviser has warned, in an extraordinary attack.

George Freeman said he now feared the troubled exit process would create an impoverished country, like “an old people’s home that couldn’t pay for itself”.

“That I see as a very real prospect and it chills me to the bone,” the Tory MP and chairman of the Conservative Policy Forum told a conference.

But, Mr Freeman said, Brexit could be “the moment we finally failed as a great nation and became a second or third tier nation”.

The comments came in a speech delivered to an economics conference staged by the IPPR think tank.

They come the day after business leaders gave the Prime Minister a two-week deadline to break the deadlock in the Brexit talks, allowing them to move on to discussing future trade.

Leading banks and other companies have warned they will start to implement contingency plans to move part of their operations out of Britain, without a breakthrough by the New Year.

Dominic Grieve, the ringleader of the Tory rebels, has declared he intends to vote against the government’s efforts to fix the date of Brexit on 29 March 2019 regardless of “bloodcurdling threats” and “arm twisting” from the whips.

On the first of eight days of debate on the European Union withdrawal bill’s committee stage, the former attorney general described Brexit as an “extraordinarily painful process of national self-mutilation”, as he warned that he would not be ordered to vote against his conscience.

Bob is my MP.

I object to the fact that he is a shoe in every time and that a vote for anyone else is effectively wasted. But I am very pleased that he is standing up for democratic process by objecting to the executive order and take it or leave it nonsense.

And for those that still don't get it, as a nation we voted to take back democratic control but a small number of people at the heart of government are attempting to pass legislation that would allow that same handful of people to bypass any democratic scrutiny of changes to the laws we are bringing back under our control. Compared with allowing an elected EU Parliament to vote on those laws, that is massively UNDEMOCRATIC.

We were asked today about the implications of Brexit and a no deal on a particular issue.

We explained how the UK would suffer as it does not have the resources to deal with this issue.

After the meeting, we just laughed. Nobody has one clue how to tackle Brexit. A year and a half on and the questions that should have been asked pre referendum are being asked now.

Complete joke.
