Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
I have read through quite a few links from your quote and am little the wiser as to how the UK/EU can disentangle their WTO commitments.  The requirement for consensus and the huge number of interested parties involved seems to make any kind of agreement in any kind of time-frame impossible to predict. It is also not clear what will happen in the interim period between the UK leaving the EU and some kind of agreement being reached.  The only conclusion I can reach is that I wouldn't want to be a UK farmer right now - their future is very uncertain indeed.  Also I wouldn't want to be a banker or supplier extending credit to UK farmers. The only people who should be happy are the lawyers...

Frank, you are the only person I know on the web writing about the WTO issue. If I am allowed to, I would ask you to dive further into this issue on one of your next writings.

You might find me At The Edge Of Time.
