Jesus, I know Fox News is an intellectual cesspit, but talk about scraping the barrel :blink:

Some patriotic British champion of the people though. ****s off to America at the first sniff of a few bucks, the hypocritical twat.

He's an opportunist of the highest order without two principles to rub together. Having said that, his line of talk is far more appropriate to Faux News than it is to any serious political arena.

First Piers Morgan, now The Falange. Remember when the British Invasion was all about kick ass bands and not exporting all your biggest knobheads?

Mm. When "Twist and Shout" was a hit here, they weren't envisioning it as a Presidential speech style.

Who did you think you'd be able to go to to complain about this sort of bullying?

Probably here

The European Court of Justice (ECJ), officially just the Court of Justice (French: Cour de Justice), is the highest court in the European Union in matters of European Union law.

Before the 1980's then.....

Only because of the French.....


The British Invasion was a phenomenon that occurred in the mid-1960s when rock and pop music acts from the United Kingdom, as well as other aspects of British culture, became popular in the United States
The EEC and the Single European Act


In 1961 Britain applied for membership of the EEC. This was vetoed by French President Charles de Gaulle, who was concerned that British membership would weaken the French voice within Europe. He also feared that close Anglo-American relations would lead to the United States increasing its influence in Europe. Charles de Gaulle also vetoed a second application from Britain in 1969

Trump " America First, America First ". We now know what a trade deal with the US will mean , bend over and get screwed.

Now I know you're deliberately being a Dick.

The EU has facilitated easy trade within the single market, including the UK, and with the same rules for all member states.

Trump has said that American jobs take priority, so any Us-UK trade deal is going to benefit American jobs at the expense of British jobs. Because they have more to gain from a deal.

A US-EU deal would have been much more equal with both being of similar GDP and an EU population size 1.5 x that of the US.
