That the news about it would dry out and I’d get stuck. As it happens, this has never come close to being the case - there is in fact so much Brexit related material to talk about, the problem every week is what to put in and what to leave out. Yet I couldn’t resist looking in depth at the government’s claim of 71 new trade deals signed post-Brexit, with the added claim that they add up to £800 billion of “new global trade”. Full Fact, amongst others have written up a good debunking of these figures. However, I still think there is more to be said here and going beyond simply tearing down what a falsehood these numbers represent, getting deeper into what this means for Brexit’s future as a project."
