The first free trade deal Liam Fox has managed to strike with a foreign country, and it shames us all.
Here he is announcing it – with Israel.
BREAKING News from @Davos: ?? and ?? have agreed in principle a UK-Israel agreement. Here is the video of Eli Cohen (Israel’s Minister of the Economy) and I making the announcement at @wef. @netanyahu #FreeTradeIsGREAT #FreeTrade #WEF2019 #wef #wef19 pic.twitter.com/odbZtWr4Uo

Audrey struck the right note with her response: “Well done, Liam. It sends a very strong message.. “You can bomb countries, commit slow genocide, never obey to international law, and we will still be Your friends as long as we have big contracts with you!” Who needs morals when you can have money??”
The part of the video clip that stood out most, for This Writer, was where it was stated that Israel’s trade with the UK had topped $10 billion for the first time in 2018.
How much of that money was spent on weapons? In 2017, I reported, it was £221 million – and that was £140 million more than the previous year.
And how many of those arms were used to kill or maim Palestinians?'
