Port is too sweet for lamb, try a nice Bordeaux instead.

So, leaving an economic system without any agreements in place about one's relationship to that system may mean that when you want to conduct trade with that group, you will no longer have the benefits of being an established trading partner.

Huh. It's as if actions have consequences. Who knew?

Old joke about British lamb:

Why is there so much British lamb? War brides after the war in the Falkland's.

Given we just got over 4 years of trump, we don't have much room to say anything.

Although I am curious if the UK may try to get back into the EU in the future.

Pretty sure France will never allow that.

Marcus Aurelius: Port is too sweet for lamb, try a nice Bordeaux instead.


That looks more like a port reduction.  Oh, and try a Tannat or Petit Verdot, or blend of the two with lamb.

After following your wisdom for so many years, I want to impress you with a theory you might have never heard.

Quite simply, Britain has been the beneficiary of small, incremental improvements in legal standing, diplomacy, and structural advantages which have allowed it to keep status in the world far beyond what it would have if it were simply competing. Some idiot, not necessarily a young person, but an unappreciative, entitled, ignorant person with no knowledge of the world looked around and thought Britain could do better. They thought all goodies the UK was getting were deserved and that Britain deserved more. All it had to do was ask for it. Not.

Same for the US. Same for any country that has found itself in a really nice position earned generations ago, but without the skills, will, and resources to husband and earn that privilege.

And that is the way it should be. Pay your dues and earn your place. That is a principle that makes everyone better off.

The UK has "moved itself aside" to make way for more ambitious nations with a brighter future. It is joining free trade agreements in other areas of the world as a junior partner.

And that is why they are stupid. All they had to do was keep their mouth shut and hope nobody noticed that they have been resting on laurels won more than a century ago. They couldn't even do that.

Lamb stuck in port? Isn't that marinading, or is it like sticking it into the pickle slicer?

Ramsay is a pompous asshole. Got nothing, want nothing.

I'll wait to see what Brexit Bob has to say about this.
