Jonathan Portes, professor of economics and public policy at Kings College London claims the UK are the weaker negotiation partner in an an interview with CNBC.
As negotiations heat up once again, claims are made by MSM pundits that the UK is the weaker partner in these negotiations. If the UK was so weak, why are the EU pleading with the UK to accept their demands for a level playing field and fisheries?. If we don’t hold the cards then why the threats of blockades from the EU fisherman?. Why is Macron threatening to sue the UK for compensation over fisheries if we are the weaker partner in these negotiations?. Bottom line is, we the UK have a very strong hand in these negotiations, it is the EU that are the weakest side in the talks. What’re your thoughts? Leave your comments below.
