Seems like the author is saying that the UK will shortly become a vassal state of the USA!
There will be US companies opening factories in the UK to take advantage of UK-EU rules
What UK-EU rules? There won't be any post-Brexit. The only Brexit that will happen will be pretty much a hard one.
There will be some kind of EU-UK agreement.
Doubtful. Because ANY agreement on the EU side requires UNANIMOUS buy-in by all EU nations. So to sabotage that, all Boris has to do is piss off one or two Euroweenie nations Trump-style over something else entirely.
"The Americans spent the last seven decades paying the world to be on their side. Those days are over. The only countries that will be able to enjoy U.S. market access and strategic cover are those who either pay the U.S. a lot of money, or bring something exceedingly shiny to trade. Supercarriers, being the gold standard of strategic assets, count. Islands off major continents, being the gold standard of strategic positions, count. Simply put, the United Kingdom has an in so long as it cow-tows appropriately. Japan is in a strikingly similar position for similar reasons. Mexico gets an invitation because it is an entangled neighbor with a dynamic economy. Canada (barely) squeaks over the threshold largely out of habit. South Korea (so far) is paying its way. And that’s…everyone."
Hahaha holy shit! When you’ve got the Queen as your caddy, that’s boss!
