That is extremely interesting.
Seems like the author is saying that the UK will shortly become a vassal state of the USA!

Some of this is nonsense, for example, the UK Fisheries which were beaten to a coma by subsidized Dutch, Iberian, and other Fisher fleets that got the Dogger Banks and Irish Sea included as part of the EU Economic Zone. These fleets are the most polluting and wasteful in the world, and they've done a Job on British Fisheries.

Another bit of nonsense is finance - British financial firms are still top 5 in the world, with centuries of connections. Leaving the EU frees them to deal with the 1/3rd of the ex-British Empire without Eurodummies interfering. US firms will outsource many foreign relationships to the City, where experience and efficiency is superior.

BaE and others are already part US owned and work on major US Defense Contracts. Britain also has several of the top 10 Pharma Companies.

Britain's industrial collapse has to do with being an EU member just when obsolescent UK factories and communist infiltrated labor was at their worst (70s, early 80s). Remember, the EU is run as the 4th Reich so EU Policy always privileges Franco-German factories.

The US AND Britain will gain bigly from an agra exchange. Next bank holiday after Free Trade, and Brits will see the advantages of not being the slaves of lazy French farmers as they grill twice as much chicken for half the price.

France and Germany WILL have to kowtow a bit to the Brits for the very good reason that to maintain ANY market share in the UK, from wine to beer to cars, they will have to make concessions. Only a complete cuck like May could fuck it up, Johnson won't. There will be US companies opening factories in the UK to take advantage of UK-EU rules, restoring balance to the UK's Economic Force.

My goal is an Anglo-American Hegemony, and the next step is to uncuck Canada and New Zealand, while offering visas to any and all Hong Kongers.

America, UK, Canada, Australia, NZ are a powerhouse together. Add in some Anglo-speaking countries as associates, and no combination of powers can defeat it.

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.

All he has to do is threaten German Cars and French Wine. That's who really runs the EU.

Whether he plays hardball or not is the question.

From the article:

"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."

God I hope he's right.

Beautiful Sentiment.

Wouldn't it be nice not to pay for freeloading backseat drivers like the Germans and French?

Unlikely they would exit the EU for a worse deal someplace else. Having written that, a vassal state to the US might be better than being in the EU.
