I was wondering .. With so little time left to achieve the impossible, just what the hell Ms. May is doing in Africa. Yes, well it's nice that she has the time to visit and all, but what could she possibly hope to achieve?

​​​​​​but then it dawned on me. Probably hoping to get one of these:

UK to sink £8b in Africa to create jobs

Africa’s public and private set will enjoy £8 billion UK’s investment to create jobs and boost growth over the next four years.
Africa’s population is set to double by 2050 and as many as 18 million extra jobs a year will be needed.
I guess that's one way of buying trade deal negotiations.

As has been pointed out by the 'media', the continent of Africa consists of many countries (58--I think). Mrs May is visiting just three.
The aim is to increase future trade Post Brexit for the benefit of 'both sides' in negotiations with these three countries.

Yes, May is visiting three. But the aid is for the whole of Africa. The UN and the African Congress both recognise 54 countries in Africa. No need to think when Google can give you the accurate answer.

Who knows what the future may hold.
Arrive in Naples this morning, EU passport holder about 45 mins queue, non EU probably still there.

When you get your bluey which queue will you be in ?

(India gives aid to 'Africa'----much aid is for diplomatic reasons!)

There are disputed 'countries' in Africa. the AfCFTA does not involve all countries and mentions 55.

Non-EU people that I know and that travel with Schengen visas don't seem to have any problems.

At least post-brexit UK will still be able to get bendy bananas. And it won't be a nonexistent EU law that (doesn't) dictate it. The UK can make its very own bendy banana law. It's gonna be great.
