Let’s say that the free trade deal is, in fact, worth £75bn; then let’s assume that the barriers have been in place for 20 years.
That means that the lack of free trade over 20 years has cost EU and US consumers £1500 billion.
So, can we now bill the politicians for that amount? Can we sue them for making us £1500 billion poorer?

Here’s the “deregulation” legislation:
Had it been actual deregulation, one line would have done, “Government isn’t going to interfere with electricity production and sales anymore.”
