Roaming charges could well make a return post-Brexit. Wouldn't be surprised to see a resurgence of the ripoff-UK tax as well.

Viewed from Ireland - #Brexit is a bit like seeing your neighbour standing naked in front of his house, screaming at the bins.

The US has published it's annual "wish list" for trade - not looking good for a Brexit trade deal. They want to lower "onerous" rules on animal welfare, chemicals and crops for biofuel (which can have serious environmental impacts).
