Post Brexit Trade Route, AU-UK

In anticipation of a possible future blockade of the South China Sea trade route, work has already begun on a faster direct route between our two nations.

Chilled Fosters Lager will be mulled and warmed midway and arrive just as you like it. Regarding the trade balance, we'll have the drop on you.

Indeed, Mark, but there's a growing concern here that it could become a conduit for illegal Pommie immigrants in violation of our sovereign borders …

Are you proposing a two way trade deal?
What would be the exchange rate?
May is all but over, so who will ratify the agreement?
We have an election next week, so all bets are on the table.

100:1 sounds like a fair deal to me. You have a lot more prison space down there than we do.

After last night's performance on BBC QT I should think he will be hiding under a rock for a while.

You drive a hard bargain, but okay, you have more pollies, we have more space, so Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton shouldn't put too much strain on ADX Florence.
Your 100 will be processed on Manus Island (Port Arthur was closed) to weed out terrorists.

Looks like it too!

Though having tried Fosters both in the Uk and in Australia I can tell you it tastes less bad here than there .

If we are going to have a Fosters tunnel from Australia please can we have a pipeline to Dublin too?
