Nissan QashqaiDoes Liam Fox believe that accusing the EU of blackmail is a good negotiating ploy?

The Tories seem more concerned about good headlines in the right wing press to keep the backbenchers onside than being serious about negotiating Brexit. Meanwhile, to the rest of the world we look foolish.

Theresa wants to piggyback onto the future EU-Japan trade deal but the Japanese are concentrating their efforts on the deal with the 500 million people in the EU. They also want tariff-free access to the EU for their UK factories (something that Liam Fox thinks is unimportant). Without that jobs will go in Sunderland, Derby, Swindon and Eaglescliffe.
