We have ourselves a Brexit convoy

[ November 1, 2018   //   ]

A group of Chinese business leaders is en route from China to London to promote post-Brexit trade and cultural relations with the UK and European neighbours in November.
The group of 40 TV executives took a fleet of 14 vehicles along the 13,000 mile ancient ‘Silk Road’ to mark the 5th anniversary of the Chinese Government’s modern ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, launched by President Xi Jinping in October 2013.

It’s far from clear what they hope to find when they get here, but who knows, by the time they arrive, the country may have worked out what it is going to do after it leaves the EU.
