If this is what is seriously being considered what are the pros and cons and how does it compare to EU? How are disputes settled, is it just with a Tweet from Donald Trump or is there some sort of supra national court?

I run the office of a consultancy business in Canada. We also have a US office. From a business perspective, particularly delivering services, NAFTA grossly inferior to the EU Single Market. Canada are also in the process of getting bent over bigly by the US, and I'm sure you're well aware of the Boeing / Bombardier shafting that going on too.

Also, if you think that the ECJ is a loss of sovereignty, the US is trying to remove the chapter 19 dispute resolution process, so you'd have to go through the US courts!

Just listening to TM on LBC radio. The more she talks about ‘deal’ or ‘no deal’ positions the more she appears like some sort of political game-show host.
