It’s a big world and the sky will not fall without the little EU project. The overwhelming majority of the growth of the world will occur outside the bloc within the next century.

Time to move on. The EU was never meant to swallow the nation-states or to grant so much power to arrogant and unelected Eurocrats, who have poisoned the EU.

Since leaving the EU, Britain has made clear its desire to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which removes most tariffs between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

British trade minister will speak to counterparts in Japan and New Zealand on Monday with a formal request to join CPTPP, the statement said.

“Applying to be the first new country to join the CPTPP demonstrates our ambition to do business on the best terms with our friends and partners all over the world and be an enthusiastic champion of global free trade,” Johnson said.

The EU is not indispensable…and it carries little weight in foreign affairs. It has turned into a circus of lightweights (von der Leyen Sassoli, Jourova, Johansson, etc.) with heavy delusions of grandeur.

All that’s left are over-rated, bottom-shelf government opportunists in both the EU Commission and EU Parliament.

The best of luck to the UK…and may your success show others the light. 💡
