OK - Britain becomes India's 30th State (probably an improvement on becoming America's 51st), I get that & probably due justice for sins past but let's not kid ouselves that this is actually good for Britain.

Actually I don't know why I am bothering, I don't actually care!

Brits have been involved in Argentina for over a century.
Fray Bentos is a city in Uruguay where the meat products were originally processed and packed.
Nowadays that process happens in Scotland.
No connection to Argentina.

Argentinian beef ?.
The beef that fed the UK during ww2.
Where does Argentinian Malbec wine come from then.
We import about 800million dollars worth of wine ,meat and other agricultural products from Argentina.
A figure that is expected to increase.

& UK exports to Argentina in 2016 = $411M - bit of a gap.

Not sure their opinions will count for anything in our new post brexit world of global trade.
You could argue that returning to past levels of trade , pre 2006 we imported around 14,000 tonnes of meat and meat products will result in an improvement in relations.
I bought some very nice Argentinian sirloin steak a few weeks ago.

Uk is gap-ping almost everywhere, they just do not have the right stuff to export.

Obviously as with so many other nations, you have to have what they want at a price that is competitive.
The UK trade gap us getting larger for that very reason.
So much for the export boost to the economy fuelled by the fall in sterling.
