    I am sorry, but this is just hypothetical at best, nonsense at worst. Trade deals with parties yet to be identified will bring trade benefits once negotiated and in place, when is that likely to be, a decade hence from now? It appears that ideolody is supplanting the cooler more pragmatic outlook us Brits were once renowned for.
