Roll on Brexit.

I'm certain that when I voted Brexit that was part of what I was voting for.

Who needs Audiis, BMWs, Mercs, etc, etc .

You seem to have been asleep at the wheel, EMR - Jaguar and Landrover are already Indian (Tata).

I predict at least one cultural faux pas before he has even left the tarmac.

No, they're British companies that are owned by an Indian parent company.

I believe EMR was referring to cars designed and built in India.

But then, it is in an even dafter observation. Trade deals often end up in one side doing better than the other (because it's consumers who decide) and therefore exporting more to India than we import from them would be wonderful.

He goes from strength to strength :

The foreign secretary evoked the darkest period of France’s recent history as he rejected comments by an adviser to Hollande who said Britain should not expect a better trading relationship outside Europe than it currently enjoys inside.

In an extraordinary outburst at a foreign policy conference in Delhi, the UK’s chief diplomat said: “If [François] Hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody who seeks to escape [the EU], in the manner of some world war two movie, I don’t think that is the way forward. It’s not in the interests of our friends and partners,” he said.
Boris Johnson: no WW2-style punishment beatings over Brexit

I must say, all the Brexiters are putting in a sterling performance in playing the victim card at the moment. Hope they can keep that up for the duration.

What's the potential value of those exports v imports?

Let's compare the two countries economies India v UK

There you go - looks better and better. The UK has a substantial trade surplus with India whereas we have a large trade deficit with the EU.

What next from corpoal Johnson, " They don't like it up them ".

It would appear that like so many politicians May has quietly shoved her speech on day one when she spoak of unity and off the interests of those who voted remain being important into the dustbin of history.
Will Boris be the next to be discarded.
