Malcolm Turnbull: ‘Be careful what you wish for’

Former Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull warned the UK over an ‘Australian-style’ trade deal, on the BBC’s Question Time.

He said leaving EU trading rules without a deal would be “disappointing” for Britain.

“Australians would not regard our trade relationship with Europe as being a satisfactory one,” he warned, adding “Australia’s relationship with the EU is not one, from a trade point of view, that Britain I think would want, frankly”.

PM Boris Johnson has described leaving the EU single market without a deal as being on “Australian” terms, although Australia does not currently have a comprehensive trade deal with the EU.
