What now for the EU ?

Looking at that as well. The Finns really loath us.
any ideas why ?. I mean it’s not like we ever invaded them is it.!

Or perhaps those nations opposed to helping us arent opposed because Brexit racist Brits - but simply because they do not think the UK needs financial assistance.

If the US is subject to a natural disaster - I would be all for UK assistance - boots on ground for immediate aid - emergency rations for those affected in the short term. But i wouldnt expect to see or support a financial aid package to the US and not because of any personal dislike.
 
Is that a Freudian slip?

No this is a Freudian slip

Why are the remainers still not talking about 'what now for the EU' as per the thread title?

They're too busy having a cake and arse party

The Finn's might think we've abandoned them.

There's a lot of common ground between UK and Scandinavia in general.

Besides if you were a Finnish soldier (ie every Finn) would you want to be stood next to a Brit or one of the other 26 nation's troops?

Bojo and his pals might wish to get these words engraved on the forefront of their minds when casting about for trade deals outside Yurp:

' It is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that by such acceptance it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors, and yet being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. '

We had a Fin Bn under command in Kosovo.

I am bound to say that from what I could see (including a couple of splendid stays with their SF in Finland) that their outlook is much more Russian/Baltic than it is Skandi/europe. That said they seriously loved working with the Brits and we even managed to fob them off with Lead Nation status (including them buying out all the camp infrastructure) enabling us to bugger off from Kosovo in order for UK to go and play in Iraq

That the Finns seem less than minded to piss on us when we are an fire is probably because UK simply does not feature in the outlook if the average Finn.

They do a cracking run ashore though....
 
The EU has trade deals with the majority (or talks underway)
Those that think that was funny?

Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) is a free trade agreement that links Canada and 10 other countries: Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

status of EU trade agreements with those countries?:

Canada - FTA in force since 21 Sept 2017
Australia - in negotiations since 2018
Brunei - no FTA or negotiations
Chile - FTA in force since 2013, replacement FTA negotiations opened and placed on hold
Japan - FTA in force since 1 Feb 2019
Malaysia - FTA negotiations paused since 2012
Mexico - FTA in force since 2000, replacement FTA awaiting ratification
New Zealand - in negotiations since 2018
Peru - no FTA or negotiations
Singapore - FTA entered into force 21 November 2019
Vietnam - FTA entered into force 1 August 2020

So come December, the U.K. is leaving FTAs with 6 of those 11 countries and negotiations with 2 more

And ?

Why are you so worried about the UK ?
 
Ok,,,, and that’s our fault how exactly.?
Moralistically, we go to war to enforce Versailles. There are broader ramifications. As has been seen on another thread we were planning to assist Finland but taking on Germany and Russia was not an option. Just goes to show actions have consequences.

If only an independent nation state could negotiate it's own trade agreements :rolleyes:

A radical concept, I know, but it's time to think outside the box . . .

It's your childish view of the world that we think is funny.
Criticism, coming from a bitter Irishman.
I'd concentrate on preparing for your countries economy to nosedive if I were you......use plenty of lube.
