It appears that Theresa May’s government in its incredible ignorance of just about everything was unaware that, unlike in the UK, elsewhere in the world, little countries do have a voice AND A VETO.
Yes, the UK government walks all over Scotland and if she were not dependent on Arlene Forster for her survival, would walk all over Northern Ireland. London ignores Wales. And they assume that other little countries can be ignored too.
But, in the WTO (and the EU) it seems that it only takes one country, no matter how small, poor and globally insignificant, to say NO, NOPE, NON, or in this case NU… and yer arse is in the fire, as they say.
