From Jason Hunter:
' Now when the negotiation becomes a reality it seems that the USA is a little bit bigger than the UK and might actually negotiate in the best interests of America rather than the best interests of the UK. Who on earth would have thought that might happen?
As for his solution? Negotiate deals on a state by state basis! The guy is a bigger fool than even I first thought!
"Liam Fox will point out that four US states - California, Texas, Florida and New York - would be members of the G20 if they were independent nations, and that many deals could be struck with states, rather than the US as a whole."
Many US States are very proctectionists- and have VERY tight controls stopping competition from other US States. Yes- negotiating with a Federalist Country, composed of many independent States- is very difficult indeed. Unlike in the UK, where Johnson can totally ignore Scotland, Wales and NI when it suits them, this just does NOT work in the US.
