INGLÉS PARA NEGOCIAR: "CHERRY PICKING"
This is an idiom that has been used repeatedly during the Brexit negotiations and describes a situation where one side (or both) want to take the best elements available to them but do not want any of the negative elements. For example: "The UK is not allowed to do any cherry picking during this process".
I have no idea why we use the idea of a cherry (cereza). It could have been a blackberry or strawberry for example!!!
Anyway, if anybody knows a good reason for the use of cherries in this case, please add it in the comments below!
Hope that helps!
