Blow to Brexit; WTO starts to fall apart on December 11th
By Tony Clayton
Just one day before the election, The World Trade Organisation which Tory Brexiteers have relied on to persuade voters to leave the EU starts to fall apart.
The Court which enforces its rules will cease to operate, because it has been sabotaged by Boris Johnson's friend Donald Trump.
The WTO's Court stops big economies, like the US, the EU, China, Japan and ASEAN, bullying smaller economies. It gives certainty for trade and - most important to the UK - for investment.
We say the UK government should be fighting, with the EU and Canada, to repair the damage and fix the WTO, rather than appeasing Trump!
