UK and US in talks over mini trade deal
17/12/2020 | news | business | 1,221
US trade chief Robert Lighthizer says he is working with Liz Truss on a deal to reduce trade tariffs.
Liz Truss? The cheese woman? Her? it’s just comical the absolute dolts we have: her, Williamson, Hancock and worzil gummidge leading it all. Private education really does get you somewhere with no talent whatsoever. Removed
Good to see trade deals getting clinched as we escape the EU clutches.
I note the BBC still believe "the big man" Joe Bribem will be the next president.
Wouldn't bet on it as the case against Joe and his crime family syndicate is mounting with new evidence on his sons laptop providing facts on their web of bribery and quid pro quo policy while Vice president.
Joe ,and co are jail bound.

Lightizer can only be trying to muddy the waters for the incoming Administration and create mischief which the UK would be party to by association if we even tried it.

He knows He has absolutely no mandate as does his President for negotiating or ratifying any Trade Deal as that has to be done by a Majority in Congress.
None of that will stop the Nasty Party (rebranded to the Baby Killer Party) from trying to make this look like a (Trumpian?) win. Removed

Good luck with that!

Biden HATES the UK based on his Irish roots and Harris sees the UK as the purveyor of slavery rather than the country who put a stop to it worldwide via our naval might.

Trump, for all his faults, loves the UK.
Biden doesn’t hate the U.K. it’s the English he has difficulty with. Understandably so! Removed

More fabulous news.

We had better get in quick though before Biden takes office and reintroduces bigotry and hatred back to Anglo-US relations due to his Irish heritage based hatred of all things English.
All Biden is concerned about is getting rich on quid pro quo deals.
Brother $1 bn deal in housing in Iraq. (No experience)
Son $1.5 bn deal with CCP finance fund (no experience)
$3 m from Putin's Moscow mayors wife ?
$ 1bn oil and gas contracts in Ukraine for son (zero experience)?
$14 m bribe appeared in bidens account ?
How did Biden become so rich on a senators after 47 years in the swamp?

'Macron goes into hiding claiming to have covid lol'

You laugh becuase someone has Covid? Because they're foreign, I assume? Nice.

'I do not suppose it would have anything to do with no fishing deal and having to face the wrath of his fishing fleet'

No, I don't suppose it does.

I think the less you post, old chap, the cleverer you'll seem.

Yep, filling in the gaps caused by greedy local councils who have strangled the high street and incompetent boards running uk companies.
And don’t forget the idiot scientists instilling the fear of God in us all and making us stay at home.
Maybe you could point us in the direction of a decent UK equivalent?

As someone who has worked in the food industry all their life, I can assure all, that the hygiene standards imposed on all food products in the USA, are of the highest, and are rigorously policed by the USDA. This is reflected in the lower number of cases of food related illnesses recorded in the US, compared to the EU. Sorry if the facts upset the open toed sandal brigade, on this HYS.

See what you have brought upon us Brexiteers.

You only have to LOOK at the obesity levels and serious health issues in the US to see what their sub-standard food will bring here.

Enjoy your chlorinated chicken, hormone injected beef and fat/salt laden American junk foods folks. What have YOU done! Absolutely fuming with you ignorant leaver fools.

"Can the BBC put a picture up of pigs being put into cages which is legal in the EU but not the UK as we higher standards for animal welfare?"

How can we have higher standards, when Brexiters said we couldn't, because we don't have sovereignty in the EU & have to follow all their rules?

You haven't been lying to us have you???

US is probably trying to scupper future Biden negotiations with UK.
Got it on the nail Crasie.

Been trying to explain why the Trump administration can't possibly do Trade deals now, or ever could unless they had won the Election AND a two thirds majority in Congress.

They only have to check this out online, but the thickos with the blinkers just don't get it's a complete con by Lightizer with the UK as useful Idiot.

All the comments berating anything with a tinge of Brexit are very monotonous. Its like a socialist worker party rally ... down with everyone who gets off their backsides, down with anyone who owns anything ... I remember this lot (or their fathers) standing on street corners sell their newspaper in the 70's.

Most gave them a wide berth and still do today ... only HYS offers them nostalgia

What a load of Trumpesque Tory Brexiter BS. Of course Trump did massively enrich his swamp, didn’t he? Uneducated ding-a-lings in the USA, are our Brexiter Gammons over here. Lighthizer & his ilk wanted to scrap affordable healthcare for US workers, yet he is allowed to lie blatantly on the BBC. He & Trump are all in the pockets of big business, big tech, big coal (!), big oil, big pollution etc. Removed

I cannot find anything on the BBC about the sad fact that UNICEF is stepping in the help feed UK children for the first time, or the fact that tax dodging tory millionaire Jacob Rees- Mogg has said they should be ashamed for doing this!! He should be ashamed along with all his party for their policies that have led to a charity normally associated with the 3rd world having to give aid to the UK

Pathetic response, truly weak.

I hate Trump because he always punches down - like all bullies, he's a chronic narcissist, a hypocrite who only cares about himself & his immediate family, he's immoral, he pretends to be Christian to get the votes of deluded evangelicals, he's a coward - like all bullies, who wets himself when confronted by authoritarian strongmen like Putin.

Why do you love him?

Thanks to years of Tory rule, austerity and general capitalist greed, we are now a third world country with millions going hungry every day as our pay and benefits are so low. How anyone could be proud of this broken ,Tory infested little island is beyond me, let alone talk of trade with the worse country for human rights in the western world.
