From the UK: What Does Brexit Mean for Montana?
If you caught our interview with Simon Owen from Fox News Radio in London, we talked about UK Prime Minister Theresa May and her Brexit compromise. Is her plan too soft? Is the prime minister on the ropes? And, what does it mean for people in a state like Montana?
Shortly after our conversation with Simon Owen in London, we got a great phone call from former Montana legislator Nick Schwaderer who now lives and works for a tech firm in the UK.
What does a Montanan have to say about all this news? Well, Schwaderer says Brexit would be a good thing for Montana, especially when it comes to agriculture, which is our number one industry. He says a tougher Brexit plan would be better for Montana agriculture because it would allow the US and the UK to conduct bilateral trade negotiations and go around the higher tariffs put in place by the EU against American products.
