The South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha has announced that it is very interested in developing greater trading links with the UK.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that this is just the sort of opportunity that is denied to the UK by being in the EU single market.

“Tristan da Cunha already has its own UK post code, which will make sending letters regarding trade agreements so much easier.”

Chief Islander Ian Lavarello confirmed that the island (population 265) would be open to the possibility of not imposing any tariffs on trade with the UK.

Prime Minister Theresa May was ecstatic.

“This is what free trade is all about. Once we leave the EU, new markets like Tristan da Cunha will be open to us.

“We aim to take these opportunities and become a global leader in free trade.”
