Vetoed it to protect our interests? Hm, interesting point.
Well as a member of the EU we can veto trade deals, but once we've left the Union we'll lose all influence within it including the ability to veto trade deals.
In future the EU will be able to come to whatever deals it wants, with whoever it wants, ignoring our interests.
Isn't that what you voted in favour of?
If the member states want they'll also be able to move towards closer political union, without us holding them back.
Fortunately, we have Jeremy Hunt and Liam Fox, with their unique negotiating skills, to organise even better trade deals than the EU can manage and Gavin Williamson with his gunboats to back them up if things get sticky
Incidentally Fox and Hunt wont really be having any involvement in brexit trade details. Our future will be in the hands of a few civil servants as we cannot get the required 240 fully trained staff to sort the mess out. Most have never negotiated a trade deal in their life so no doubt they will secure us a better deal then we are getting with the EU at the moment
I need to have the last word as it makes it look as if i'm always right!
