This is a useful article from Andrew Smith in the Independent. He reports that it’s been three months since Theresa May called for Brexit to be the birth of “a truly global Britain” and we’re starting to see what that actually means. He suggests that over recent months, we have seen Government ministers amassing huge numbers of air miles in a bid to form new trading relationships and strengthen older ones.

Brexit risks remain severe and probable, especially the future trading relationship with the EU. In mitigation, the government is turning to global opportunities but there are risks too in those opportunities. Sadly, arms sales are big business but this will probably mean turning a blind eye to restrictions on civil liberties. Theresa May has cuddled up to Erdogan, Trump and now seeks to do the same in autocratic Middle Eastern regimes.

I fear that by the next election thanks to David Cameron letting the genie out of the bottle, Britain will be a very different place. It’s interesting to speculate on the winners and losers in post-Brexit Britain?
