    So does South Korea, China, and despite Obama's lies before Brexit there are moves afoot in the US too.

    Getting on for a third of the world will have trade deals with us, before they do with the EU.

    India has been waiting for over seven years for a deal with Brussels and there is still no sign of one...

    Nimble tiger economy emerging, escaping the declining, sclerotic Europe of the unelected Brussels bureaucrats!

    Project Fear was just that, predicting doom and gloom, calling bluffs and hoping the voting public wouldn't see through it.

    The irony is USA is meant to be our " best ally " yet we at the back of the line... meanwhile whats meant to be our competition China wants a trade deal asap, India has history with UK but on China side, South Korea USA reliable ally want a trade deal.

    Why is USA enemies wanting a trade deal asap and USA putting us at the back? Stupid EU fearmongering... trying to make it come true.

    The EU and India are already trading partners, with total trade and services of over €100 billion in 2014. This is despite India imposing restrictive trade tariffs as a means of benefitting home business. Any trade deal offered to the UK is unlikely to be any more favourable, and would probably be less so, as the UK alone does not carry the economic weight of the EU.

    Also, if potential investors think that the UK will be a more attractive proposition because of the possibility of reduced taxation and repealing of employment, H&S, and benefit legistalion, their business is not worth having.

    Trade agreements with countries that can mass produce goods cheaper than us isn't always a good idea

    For an example, just look at how our steel industry has fared with the flood of chinese steel
    Trade agreements are fine, free trade agreements are not.
