Despite claims that the US would banish Britain to the “back of the queue” if it dared to leave the European Union, Congress is already considering measures to boost trade with the UK.
A bill to lock down current trading arrangements, and fire the starting gun on a bilateral deal, was introduced to the US Senate yesterday.
The United Kingdom Trade Continuity Act mandates the US to keep trading on exactly the same terms after Britain leaves the EU.

If true, that's good news. Although we are leaving the EU(which did dissapoint me), I'm happy to see that the government is being on the ball when dealing with this. Australia, New Zealand(who is offering trade diplomats which we dearly need), Iceland, Singapore, South Korea amd I think also Mexico getting the trade deal ball running. It is what it is now and their will be tough times ahead but if we can be proactive on it, the damage can be limited which is the key thing. And sorry Brexiters but free movement in an EU trade deal will happen. Sorry but to expect otherwise is to dream like a delirious person
