Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Trade deals are done by the EU Commission, not individual member States. Brussels has a negotiating team ready to receive their UK guests .... May's ERG Team? 😒

You're forgetting the bit of Brexiteer mythology where the EU explodes into its constituent parts because they simply can't manage without the Brits holding the show together for them. The ERG will then simply march in and negotiate on a one to one basis with former memebres and bring the Irish etc. to heel...
