If we go into the Brexit discussions with our European friends with the prospect of a US trade deal in our back pocket we clearly have a stronger hand. If the eastern members of the EU are worried and want our defence and security support, not to mention our influence over the US, we clearly have a stronger hand. If voters in France, Germany, the Netherlands and elsewhere look likely to follow the Anglo Saxon trend and vote against the Establishment and against the Union, we clearly have a stronger hand. Whether Theresa May and David Davis have the ability to utilise that strength is an open question, but the prospects of us doing a good deal have definitely gone up overnight.
