The Yanks sure know how to screw you over for a buck, don't they Burnside. Something the UK Government should be keenly aware of if (as the WSJ article concludes) Brexit negotiations end with us falling back on the 'no deal' WTO trading arrangements. The webpage can be accessed on @WSJ on Twitter - if I can find an alternative working link I will post it to this thread.
