“US promises fast-track trade deals after Brexit”

You seem to imagine that the EU gives a toss about the UK outside the club. They are not the ones that won't negotiate. It is Boris that refuses to talk with them and there is nothing to talk about anyway considering the refusal to accept the backstop and the UK wanting its cake and to eat it all.
The EU are quite willing to let the UK go without a deal and politically, if not quite economically, they are now overwhelmingly of the opinion that it is 'good riddance'. In fact it is far from certain that they would even grant an extension now even if the UK asked for it.

You have a sadly exaggerated idea of the UK's importance in the world and certainly to the EU. This doesn't surprise me as it is a well known English trait and that is not being racist, it is stating a well known fact.
Steady it was your fellow Welshmen who voted out in numbers.
Thankgoodness theyve got more common sense in Brecon and Radnor recently.

The ones in South Wales that actually received the greatest benefit from the EU. You couldn't make it up. The sink estates full of the unemployable were out in force voting, even in my Ceredigion county ward, many for the first time in their lives, for brexit. To make the UK and themselves poorer.
My own county actually voted to stay in despite the unemployables being dragged out to vote and actually obeying the wishes of the multi-millionaire, Eton educated toffs that promised 350million per week extra for the NHS [printed bold as you like on a big red bus].

90 % of farmers who I speak to and I speak to a lot voted out . We all know that it was Aberystwyth University Town that kept us in
Your extreme views are in a minority in the farming community I'm afraid, but then the hill sheep me will be worried by it all

A lot of farmers are now belatedly waking up to the fact their farming days may be coming to a close.

They tell you what you want to hear.
They will soon start doing U turns when their living disappears, although they are slow to realise why their beef price has dipped so low even now. Or why tractor and input prices have gone up so much in the UK but not for other EU farmers.
