Almost six weeks ater Brexit Day, thanks mainly to the frantic eforts of the government in the twelve months before Brexit, food arrived into the country from the United States and Japan. But neither of its new trade partners was willing to treat the UK as an equal. Britain had crawled to them begging and was in no position to make demands.
