Back To The Future - Empire 2.0

 
UK officials are planning a return to privileged trade with former British colonies in an attempt to replace the agreements which will be lost with Brexit, a project aka ‘Empire 2.0’.

Trade Minister Liam Fox will kick off by trying to recreate special free trade relations with New Zealand, Canada, Australia and a variety of African nations (ie the Commonwealth).

Members of the Commonwealth (the 52-nation network) will meet in London on Thursday and Friday and officials will launch a charm offensive in a bid to replace the EU.

As one door closes, so another opens!
