    He has actually. The situation is that the UK Govt post brexit woukl do anything for a trade deal with the US. Its the second biggest issue in the election. People here dont want shitty US healthcare or shitty US food. Or anything to do with Trump.

    I would think the answer is in the article.

    It represents “a clear expression of our continuing commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” – the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal – the trio added.

    They insisted Iran must return to full compliance with its commitments under the deal “without delay”.

    It suggests to me that any deals are reliant on Iran complying with the treaty. Something they have not done since the US reneged on the agreement. I thought that was pretty obvious. The race is now on between Iran complying and the US electing an adult. Where is your money ?

    So giving Iran what it needs to survive and continuing to increase the amount of nuclear material is a method of of dissuading them? What kind of fairytale logic are you trying for?

    My money is on your "clear expression" being nothing but hot air. When they actually trade something please let us know. Until then they have agreed to do nothing.

    That would be, honoring the terms of the agreement they entered into, feebly enough, but still... I can see how, from the perspective of a mindless, Trump-adulating sycophant, that would look like a "fairytale".

    Real Americans don’t want anything g to do with the UK. Some of my ancestors left the British Empire for a reason. They enjoyed shooting Redcoats. Then the British refused to support our Confederacy against the Union... but expected us to bail their asses out twice in the century that followed.

    That depends on our Iranian friends, as I have taken the trouble to explain.

    Taken together, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden, have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to prevent Iran from sponsoring terrorism or aiding the people of Hong Kong.

    They can pretend they're relevant, but they no longer are
