It is no longer a joke for iron plates.

Dad, I'm persistent and put a quiz of large numbers because anything good. So, I question this morning."

A fish shop that is 8 years old. Afghan store manager Abdul, 45, broke his eyebrows, "If that happens, I will lose the store."

There are about 60 kinds of seafood such as salmon, perch, shrimp and octopus in the store. Point to them, "This is from France , that is from Spain ." Indeed, if you leave without agreement, it may be difficult to obtain, or the purchase price may rise due to the weaker pound. Looks serious. Abdul looked into my face as he tried to finish the interview after listening to the story.

“By the way, do you really believe that there is a“ no agreement ”?”

This time I frowned. Huh,…
