Nigel. And let me remind you that you would rather like to align yourself with a country that has such low welfare standards that it has to make its chickens safe to eat by chlorinating them, which thinks nothing of GMing its crops and which wants to build a wall to keep Mexicans out.

I don't know who you think you're quoting, but it's certainly not me.
Yes, I think we should trade with the US, but that does not mean aligning ourselves with them.
The stated point of the EU is "ever closer union". (i.e.closer alignment)
