No Global Britain!

Post by RandomAmerican »

The British government is hammering new trade deals with the world in an attempt to establish a "Global Britain" despite the fact that this appeals more to Remain voters than Leave voters.

Recent academic work suggests greater openness to cheaper manufacturing imports, from China in particular, was part of a longer-term trend contributing to the decline of left behind areas and increased their tendency to vote Leave. Reducing further barriers to cheaper imports through the pursuit of free trade agreements, though perhaps marginally beneficial at the UK-wide level, would seem a curious way to reward these voters.
Globalists never learn.
