Sir: The threatened trade war between the United States and Europe seems to be causing some alarm amongst various UK manufacturers, but surely this is unnecessary.

We have been told by successive governments over the past fifty years that we have a special relationship with the United States.

So it must be safe to assume that exports from the United Kingdom to America will be excluded from whatever action the United States takes against Europe. If not, this might be a good opportunity to declare the special relationship at an end. We could then take charge of our foreign policy again.
