TTIP Trade Deal with America
A few days ago, the TTIP trade deal between America and the European Union fell apart. The negotiations have been going on for years, but now seem to have reached an impasse. At one point, America's refusal to import British lamb was a sticking point, but now that Great Britain has decided to leave the E.U., that can no longer be an issue.
I think there are just two many variables and getting 27 countries to agree on anything is impossible. America sees Europe as one country, but it is anything but!
Never mind, America, you can trade deal with us and, by the way, our lamb is delicious and well worth your consideration. We, in this family, have been eating it forever and had no ill effects whatsoever!
