You still don't get it. The so called bill is just asking the UK to write down that they will pay their commitments and share of pensions. There is no link whatsoever with a trade deal besides in the mind of some retarded politicians.

Maybe but hey knew what the EU was up to, long before it joined: The Rome treaty is the EU foundation and the gaols are clearly speed. UK tried rather unsuccessfully to sabotage from the inside for 40 years. Since the brexit vote, the UK is making "generous" offers for trade that just have one problem: they are against EU pillars and they know it.
