Reader’s Comment of the Day: Britain and America are already great trading partners


In response to Fox on Friday: Brexit can liberate Europe for the third time in 100 years, Sterling77 wrote:

The ‘Remain’ camp followers really have thrown everything at us Brexit supporters this week, including the kitchen sink today. Obama insisted the referendum decision is for British voters’ and their’s alone… and then came the bombshell threat. The outgoing President secured headlines by warning a US-UK trade deal post-Brexit “won’t happen any time soon” and claiming Britain “will be at the back of the queue”. Of course, it’s because we’re in the EU that we don’t have a trade deal with the US. How will voters react when they see the US President threatening them on the news?

Also worth bearing in mind that currently with no trade deal in place with the US, the UK is the biggest investment partner already and the US is the biggest investor in the UK ($324 billion). UK investment in the US last year was $282 billion. Over a million Americans work for British companies and over a million Britons are employed by American companies. We are already at the front of the queue doing $56 billion of transatlantic trade last year…Does Obama really think he can destroy trade and jobs between our two countries? Is this an example of why he is called a ‘lame duck’ President? He is destroying what remains of the ‘special relationship’.

Despite these threats, Britain must keep calm and carry on to Vote LEAVE on 23rd June. Despite the ‘Remain’ threats, Britain will make a success of leaving a dysfunctional EU. Vote to LEAVE on 23rd June.
