John Bolton doesn't want a trade deal with the UK - he wants to colonise us


So when Bolton, whose actual job is national security adviser to Donald Trump, came to London this week to meet Boris Johnson and senior ministers, the real focus of his visit, despite the Whitehall briefings, was not on a post-Brexit bilateral trade deal.

It was on regime change in the UK. Bolton, a lifelong neoconservative ideologue, Muslim-baiting thinktanker and erstwhile Fox News commentator, does not give a hormone-filled sausage or chlorine-rinsed chicken wing for a free trade pact, fair or otherwise. Midwest wheat and soya exports are not his thing. What Bolton really does care about is exploiting the UKís recent governmental upheaval, which almost anywhere else would be described as a rightwing coup, to Americaís, and Trumpís, advantage. In short, the former colonies are out to colonise the UK.

A lot to digest but well written by Simon Tisdall -

Nancy is right to put this subject squarely on the table....NO DEAL BEXIT is an abomination....and piece meal trade deals..I don't think so...
