It's quite horrifying how much government and the people in it don't know....
Article 24 World Trade Organisation (WTO) General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)
"This is an extremely important plus for the UK because both the EU and UK are WTO members and must both abide by the WTO GATT rules especially article 24. It means that once we leave we could have at least 10 years of Free Trade with the EU anyway...."

Why do Gov't not know this?
I'm sure they do; May et al ignoring WTO rules to claim UK must remain in EU?
From all the disagrees, seems @irlsgt does not like facts. Is there a Fairy Tales thread it can go and live in?
"If we vote to leave, then we will leave." They promised...
Article 24 allows for FTAs or CU
So what exactly is being proposed here?:
Maintaining the status quo by up to 10 years in order to:
(a) create a FTA with the EU
(b) stay in the EU CU but leave the EU itself
(c) create a EU-UK CU
Bearing in mind there must be a preliminary agreement to use Article 24, both the UK and EU would have to agree to use of Article 24 and there could be complaints.
