Trade deals at risk because of Brexit

Trade deals in jeopardy - thank you Brexit!
 Finally, some honesty and realism from Theresa May's government, with her ministers admitting that almost sixty five existing trade deals with non-EU countries are now at risk because of Brexit.

This is in stark contrast to the promises made by Liam Fox and other Leave campaigners who indicated that as soon as we had voted to leave, we'd have other trade agreements almost instantaneously lined up.  In fact, it's far from it.

Reports suggest that countries like Australia and India may be open to trade agreements for more - wait for it - relaxed immigration, or even free movement!  No prizes for guessing for how Brexiteers will feel about this if such a deal is made - it will though give them foreigners, albeit not EU citizens, to blame traffic, queues, heck, maybe even the weather on.
