Daniel Hannan, a British member of the European Parliament (MEP), made an eloquent, impassioned speech this weekend on what should take place in Brexit talks.
After listening to Hannan on Brexit, regulation and trade, I am certain he would make a far better US president than anyone in the entire field from 18 months ago.
A few videos will make the case, the first is only a minute long.

Some may that was a self-serving speech. Perhaps, it was. However, Hannan’s proposed framework is also in the best interest of the EU.
Unfortunately, the Eurocrats are far more interested in punishing the UK than negotiating a win-win settlement. Doing so makes the EU nothing more than a prison, with walls restricting trade.
Outside of war, it never make sense to restrict trade. But here we are, with the EU bound and determined to punish the UK, even though they will fear even worse by doing so.
