The @WTO Director-General manages 625 people. He has no discretionary authority to create, enforce or interpret trade rules.

But hey, if the Prime Minister wants to skip Brussels, Paris and Berlin to come hang with me by the lake in Genf, I'll start mixing the Aperol Spritz's.
Also, the WTO shuts the hell down in August. Today and tomorrow are the final General Council meetings before the summer break.

Seriously, they all bloody leave. It's a ghost town.

Everyone in the city just points their call forwarding at each other and fucks off.
So to summarize, the proposal here is that the incoming Prime Minister "sends a message" by ditching EU capitals for Geneva, to hang out in a largely empty building chatting to an international civil servant with no authority whatsoever over Britain's post-Brexit fate.
