Well the tariff has been assessed, or at least threatened, by Donald Trump/ the US government against the Canadians, so I am confused as to what you think that has to do with the British government and any (future) post-Brexit trade deals?

You really do live in some weird parallel universe, don't you? ..... I never remember the Welsh agreeing with anything English, government-related or otherwise.

You must be confusing with the Scots. They're up north. Wales is southwest.

Anyway, it's a Welsh newspaper and in this csse, they're arguing the incompetence of [English] leadership, in both Brexit, and banking on the yanks to save them from it.

looks like Brexit will work out well with all these favorable UK-US trade agreements

It surprises me that anyone is surprised by this display of weakness.
It just demonstrates how far the UK is out of its depth in dealing with Trump.

Once you divorce manufacturing capability from its inward investing source, you deny growth and future development in that location in the EU, and risk opening up it's markets and resources to (US) competitors to gobble up - imo.

Well, Theresa May thinks it's relevant:

'Speaking at a Bank of England event in central London, Mrs May said there was also a wider issue.

"I think there is a real challenge for us globally today, because I think that there are aspects of protectionism creeping in around the world," she added, saying that she wanted the UK to be "a global champion of free trade".'

And, more specifically about UK/US trade:

'Prime Minister Theresa May has said Boeing's behaviour in its trade dispute with Bombardier is undermining its relationship with the UK.
She said Boeing was not adopting "the sort of behaviour we expect from a long-term partner".'

Boeing's Bombardier row undermines its UK ties, says May - BBC News

Don't confuse the poor guy even more. What relevance has May to Brexit?
