Trump or Brussels: Brexit and the art of 'No deal' - Anthony Barnett - OpenDemocracy UK
But it will be a victory for the other side, and will be greeted as such by influential figures on the British right - while a can of diet coke will be raised in celebration by the ogre in the White House. For there is no such thing as a `No deal'. There is either a deal with the EU or with the US. ...

Three sources for a Hard Brexit

... First, there is the free-market tank prospectus, second the City of London is indifferent and, most important of all, the United States is keen to break the EU.

... Once more they will proclaim Independence Day. But Trump and all he represents will be waiting for them, welcoming the UK into his anti-EU alliance with generous terms that cannot be refused in the otherwise dire circumstances and Britain will enter the US sphere of corporate servitude.
