Only the US and the EU? Which country with a sane mind would enter a trade deal with the UK if they know there's a good chance the UK will later try to wiggle out of the deal, not fulfil its commitments or try to circumvent the agreement?

Brexit: UK reneging on Northern Ireland pledges risks trade deals with US and EU

Unless something changes all that talk about "sovereignty" and "letting our own parliament decide our laws" was just yet another empty promise, certainly in regards to trade deals with all their legal, economical and societal consequences. It will just be another power grab by a Tory government with impacts lasting for generations, possibly forever.

Think Britain has sovereignty over trade deals? Not when MPs can’t stop them

Ok, it's The Sun, so I'm not sure how reliable this is, but if true: wasn't Brexit largely about all the amazing trade deals and global Britain and all that waffle? Shouldn't that require a good bit of involvement from the PM?

Of course nobody could see this coming. The EU defending their interests with all means available to them instead of just rolling over and giving the UK everything it wants. I mean, what is the EU thinking?

Won't be long until the headlines in the Murdoch & Co press will scream about the unreasonable bully boy tactics EU. And mention that the UK won the war. And something about Dunkirk spirit.

Could very well turn out to be very close to the truth....

Some good arguments why Boris Johnson won't "get Brexit done" by the deadlines he promised. Despite all the bluster during the election campaign (and more bluster to come over the next year) it's quite likely there will be another "extension" (although of course it won't be called that. It will be some other term, trying to disguise it)

So Boris Johnson is going to ‘do’ Brexit – but what are the actual options?

Surely with the UK holding all the cards they don't need to be match fit? Just a short game of poker surely shouldn't be too tough?

The problem is that tariffs are mostly quite low and therefore largely irrelevant anyway. What matters is regulatory alignment, similar rules, a level playing field, recognition of standards and all those things. All of which the UK will largely lose with leaving the EU. But that's something that won't go into the heads of politicians thinking in terms from decades ago

Interesting read on how smaller companies are likely to suffer most under a "Canada style deal", contrary to the promises of the Brexiteers who claimed Brexit would reduce red tape and bureaucracy. Again the difference between "free trade" and "frictionless" rears its ugly head....

"UK must give in to all US demands to have any chance of a trade deal" There, fixed that for you. A UK desperate to get any trade deal at all will not be in a position to make demands to a much much much more powerful US. It's as simple as that.

A few trade lessons the Brexiteers should learn. And the voters as well. Although if the voters learn and understand trade most Brexiteers will be out of a job.
Liam Fox wants children to learn about global trade. But it’s Brexiters who need the lessons

"Taking back control" seems to have morphed into "handing control over to the USA". Soon the Brexiteers will claim that's what people voted for and that they knew what they were voting for.

If you thought the UK is in trouble now while trying to agree on the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) you ain't seen nothing yet. Even if the WA is agreed tomorrow, the real trouble and the real hard choices for the UK haven't even been thought about, let alone started to be discussed. Excellent and important Twitter thread by David Allen Green (which he might also post on his new blog, if so I'll post the link into the comments later):

The promises of the Brexiteers in regards to trade deals vs the harsh, very harsh, reality:
More striking is the US attempt to restrict Britain’s ability to sign a deal with a non-market economy such as China. So much for taking back control. If the UK were to sign up to these demands, we’d simply be trading one set of restraints on our sovereignty – restraints agreed by us and 27 other nations in Brussels – for another, dictated by Donald Trump in Washington.
But then I've got a sneaking suspicion that a lot of the "dark money" which was flowing (or flooding?) into the Leave campaign also came from interested circles in the US (in addition to some Russian sources).
