This government seems determined to reach record beating highs of incompetence. So no deal with Europe, and none with the USA (it is unlikely that Trump will regain both Houses of Congress even if he wins a second term). Deals with Australia would seem to be environmentally unsustainable at any logical level? And even then we have to obey World Trade Organisation rules.

But we have a trade deal with Japan – not particularly different from present EU deal, but slightly better? OK so that is 0.7% of GHDP sorted, unless the government changes its mind in a few months!
