Trade deals – the driving force behind BREXIT

Do the trade deals now. Worry about politics later.

One area in which May must give ministers more freedom to manoeuvre is in agreeing new trade deals. One cabinet minister, who campaigned vigorously for Remain, admitted to me this week that he had been taken aback by how many countries were interested in making trade deals with the UK. It is vital that our country is in a position to sign as many of these as it can as fast as possible after leaving the EU. Early deals would create momentum for more and show that Britain was intent on being an open, outward-looking nation. That is one of the keys to making a success of Brexit.
