1/ A set of explainers, taken from #5live's Breakfast Show (28/01/19), with @MielkenArne (Institute of Export & International Trade). First up what is the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and what does it do? @rachelburden
2/ 'Countries set up FTAs amongst themselves, or bilateral trade agreements, to make it (trade) a little bit better, to integrate more, to have more trade and have less rules and red tape, and therefore we have a spaghetti ball of multiple FTAs.' @MielkenArne #5livebreakfast
3/ 'What would the impact be on the UK economy if we were to revert to WTO rules?' @rachelburden. Listen to @MielkenArne explain the significant difference between trading in the Single Market, as an EU member, when compared to trading on WTO rules. #5livebreakfast

Surprisingly nuanced, un-shouty phone-in on 5 Live about immigration and Brexit at the moment. Probably because it's 3 women. (I know, I know but I stand by it).
Great discussion on 5 Live. Now joined by Sandro, an Italian who has been in the UK for 40 years ...who says all the Brexit anti-migrant rhetoric makes him feel like a 'marauding barbarian;.
Harmony shattered. Shouty Scouse bus driver talking about uncontrolled immigration. It was lovely while it lasted. Sandro the Italian taking him on #5live
