TRUMP’S JUST TRADING INSULTS
Where to start with Trump? Sharing hate-filled Islamophobic tweets from a right-wing group of British racists. Then having a pop at Theresa May when she correctly pointed out this was a pretty stupid thing to do.
The fact is we might as well kiss goodbye to any trade deal with the US while Trump is in the White House. He currently wants to make a North American trade deal with Mexico and Canada last only five years! May was right to call him out but naive to rush over there to hold his hand to get a desperate deal. Trump’s judgment is terrible. But so was May’s. four in its manifesto – for each of our national patron saints. Surely an extra day to pay tribute to Harry won’t wreck the economy? That’s the Tories’ job after all!
Experts have found a bank holiday usually costs £2.3billion in lost economic output. Prince William’s wedding, which was made a bank holiday, generated £107million to London’s economy from tourism. A wider economic hit was soon made up.
With a weak pound and huge US interest from a royal marrying an American, Harry’s wedding could easily make money for UK PLC. And why not have a bank holiday? The average for the G20 group of leading nations is 12 a year. England and Wales get eight.
On another note, the marriage will strengthen our ties with the US. And as Harry and Meghan’s kids could be American, they could even run for US President.
And they couldn’t do any worse than Trump.
