BBC: US and UK working on major trade deal; MT: Boris Johnson will deliver Brexit and a blow to the EU economy

 
Donald Trump and Boris Johnson (Wikipedia)

COGwriter

The BBC reported the following:

27 July 2019

US President Donald Trump has said talks about a “very substantial” trade deal with the UK are under way.

He said a bilateral post-Brexit deal could lead to a “three to four, five times” increase in current trade.

There are no details about how this would be achieved.

After a phone call with Boris Johnson on Friday, Mr Trump said the new prime minister would be “great”. He added US-UK trade had previously been “impeded” by Britain’s membership of the EU.

Once the UK leaves, he said, the UK can expect to do “much more” trade with the US, he said.

Mr Johnson and Mr Trump said they would begin formal negotiations “as soon as possible” after the UK leaves the EU.

While the UK is in the EU, it cannot sign its own trade deals. Brexit is due to happen on 31 October. …

The US is a major trade and investment partner for the UK – by some measures the biggest of all.

According to the Office for National Statistics’ latest available figures, the US (including Puerto Rico) is our top trading partner. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-49135045

The above is consistent with something I posted here back in 2008:

In the spirit of accommodation and personal interest, many of the “standards” of the European Union will be adopted by the USA, Canada and Mexico, as well as by nearly all of the countries of the world. …

However, over time, it will become increasingly clear that the British will be in more agreement with the Canadians and Americans and that the European Union in more agreement with the Mexicans than the EU will have with the English-speaking nations.

Trade wars and/or serious trade disputes will most likely arise.

The Brits will ultimately decide that they are more supportive of the Americans and Canadians. They will be so much more supportive that they will end up in a trading agreement with them (with the Australians and New Zealanders probably also becoming part of that agreement).

The EU will decide that Mexico and the rest of Latin America are in more agreement with it and thus make some type of serious trading agreement with most (or all) of Latin America. The Vatican will also have influence here as Latin America is highly Roman Catholic.

The Europeans and Americans, however, will continue to have military agreements, though many will be tense about them. (Thiel B. A Combined EU & North American Trade Block Coming? COGwriter.com, March 3, 2008)

As far as the Mexico and Latin America part of that post, that has also happened–for details check out the June 30, 2019 post: EU’s Juncker essentially verified accuracy of 2008 COGwriter prediction on trade.

So, we now see the USA and UK talking about a major trade deal. The UK is also likely to make deals with Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as soon as it can. While a member of the European Union, the UK is prohibited from entering into formal trade deals that are not EU deals.

As far as the EU, Boris Johnson, and Brexit go, Mike Shedlock of Mish Talk (MT) wrote the following:

EU About to Face 2 Realities: Johnson Will Deliver Brexit, Eurozone in Recession

Hello EU. Meet Boris Johnson and his negotiating team. While doing so, think about recession.

Johnson Will Deliver Brexit

Eurointelligence has finally come around to my long-held four-point stance.

  1. Boris Johnson is not bluffing.
  2. He will deliver Brexit.
  3. The EU would be wise to make a deal.
  4. Germany and the Eurozone will be in a world of hurt if they don’t. …

Eurointelligence wavered greatly and never strongly endorsed that set of viewpoints until now.

In addition, there is one more point below that is a huge change in their stance.

What Should the EU Do?

It is no secret that Boris Johnson is held in contempt by the chancelleries of Europe. But, whatever EU leaders think of him personally, they will soon be confronted with a formal request to re-open negotiations on the withdrawal treaty.

EU unity has held up extraordinarily well during the entire Brexit negotiations, but this is because the EU was confronted by a weak negotiator. Olly Robbins gave the game away when he said that either the Commons would vote for the treaty, or Brexit would be postponed for a long time. From the EU’s perspective, this was a game of head-I-win, tails-you-lose.

But, when confronted with a partner willing to accept a no-deal Brexit, the situation changes. The EU will need to consider, for the first time in earnest, the political dynamics in the European Council in the days and hours before a no-deal Brexit. Are they really prepared for it as they say? Politically and technically?

We don’t think so.

EU in Recession

Germany is in recession right now. That’s my call but it is a minority view.

By October 31, the entire Eurozone is likely to be in recession.

To understand recession chances and the potential for EU panic, please see US, Germany, Japan in Manufacturing Recessions: Full-Blown Recessions Coming Up.

Pretending Period is Over

The pretending period is now over.

Johnson will deliver Brexit. 07/26/19 https://moneymaven.io/mishtalk/economics/eu-about-to-face-2-realities-johnson-will-deliver-brexit-eurozone-in-recession-lyhQi6SX9k2QcBigmlJW5w/

While the EU realized that former UK Prime Minister did not really want the UK out of the EU, it should realize that Boris Johnson has pledged to do that. How that will affect negotiations for the UK to leave the EU is unclear. But what is clear is that Boris Johnson has repeatedly stated that the UK would pull out by October 31, with or without a deal.

A couple of days ago, I posted the following at this COGwriter Church of God News page:

Donald Trump’s policies and statements have also been pushing the Europeans away from the USA.

Furthermore, Brexit will impact the economy of the UK and the EU.

Various banks and financial institutions have either left or are in the process of leaving the UK for the European continent.

And while that is impacting London’s ability to be as important of a financial center, this does not mean that all will go well for the European bankers.

Furthermore, Brexit may well be a factor in the contributing to an economic crisis that will one day cause reorganize and unite under the coming Beast as laid out in Revelation 17:12-13.

The late Pastor General of the old Worldwide Church of God, Herbert W. Armstrong, had a view about banking matters and European unity. Here is something he said in a sermon on July 7, 1984:

And I can see now, the event that is going to trigger the formation of the reunification in Europe; the resurrection of the medieval Holy Roman Empire that we’ve been looking forward to that is prophesied to come…

But I believe that some event is going to happen suddenly just like out a blue sky that is going to shock the whole world and is going to cause the nations in Europe to realize they must unite! … Well now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger…that is the economic situation in the world

The whole banking structure in the United States is a network all jointed together. But not only that, one nation has to deal with other nations and imports and exports. And so they have to have a means of transforming money from one nation to another. And so the banking structure is international and interwoven…

Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down…

So, an economic or banking crisis is what Herbert W. Armstrong concluded would drive Europe to unite.

Brexit, as well as issues with the United States, would logically be a factor. (Thiel B. Boris Johnson promises golden age and Brexit, but . . . COGwriter, July 25, 2019)

Yes, I believe that the UK’s expected departure from the EU will have negative economic impacts on Europe.

It will take one or more crises for Europe to reorganize and be led by the Beast of the Sea that scriptures, such as those that Revelation 13 refers to.

And a European reorganization is also specifically prophesied:

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.  (Revelation 17:12-13)

Presuming that the UK leaves the EU in 2019, that does NOT mean that I believe that Revelation 17:12-13 will be fulfilled in 2019. To the contrary. Let me state that Revelation 17:12-13 will NOT be fulfilled in 2019.

But I do believe that a UK departure from the EU will have economic and other ramifications that will lead not only to the fulfillment of Revelation 17:12-13, but also to the prophesied destruction of the UK (cf. ) and the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39).

Policies from Boris Johnson and Donald Trump will be factors.

Brexit and the fate of Northern Ireland, Gibraltar, the UK, and the USA On April 29, 2017, 27 of the nations of the European Union agreed to certain guidelines for the negotiations with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which gave its notice to leave on March 29, 2017.

Spain wants Gibraltar and Argentina wants the Falklands (also known as the Malvinas). UK Prime Minister David Cameron says the UK will defend the Falklands Gibraltar.
