Re: I hate to break it to you
That would be entirely typical, but we can just subtract it from the "Brexit bill" they're trying to impose, and let them whistle for it.
You do realise that we have to establish deals with new trading partners soon don't you? They are going to be watching how we deal with the EU and taking notes. Acting the hardman and showing contempt toward our current partners is unlikely to help us negotiate new deals.
Britain has to be seen to be open for business and that means it has to be seen to be fair and respectful toward those it trades with.
