Brexit Phase Two - Trade

That’s your opinion. That Brexit routine of ignoring it and hoping it will go away, hows that working?

I could see your point if the Eu had thrown us out. Then it would be their problem. But, brexiters voted to leave. Citing control of their borders as one platform, without having the first clue about how to deal with the only one we have.

Did someone steal Gibraltar?
 
I listened to Ken Clark on Radio4 about four months ago, at the time he was preaching the 'Disaster' that we had let ourselves in for. This morning again on Radio4 he was far more condescending, and and came up with some good positive valid and useful points, I think he may be 'won over'?
He knows that he's winning the good fight for damage limitation, I would guess
 
Described this morning on R4 as ‘Today’s daily panic at number 10’. It doesn’t exactly fill one with confidence that the government have much a clue where it’s going.

I like the idea that when they ‘War gamed’ the scenario they only expect to’lose’ Boris and Gove in resignations.
Theresa May faces Brexit showdown

Even the Guardian is less frothy than you today....


“UK will leave single market and customs union, No 10 maintains, as MPs prepare for key debate”

It is indeed my opinion, but I was paid to provide opinions on international trade for a number of years.

How is it working? Well the UK doesn’t have to do anything. It’s an EU problem - ask them how it’s working not me.
 
Yep, off the web site:

European External Action Service
University postgraduates (Master's or PhD level)
Who can apply: candidates who have obtained a university degree equivalent to a Master's degree or higher in a domain relevant to the activities of the EU Delegations (at least four years of university)
Duration: 9-18 months
Where: EU Delegations

These MBAs and PhDs are tough as nails - watch out for the aiborne accountants.
do a tour with EUFor. It's like the 300 at Thermopylae.

And this flapping is us doing nothing. . If this is us not having to do anything. The turmoil in Europe must be appalling.

The flapping seems to be coming from the losers in the Brexit vote, and their inability to accept reality.

Trust me: the UK just has to introduce import tariffs that are lower than the punitive EU ones and they, THEY, will run the border, because it’s the EU that will be losing money not the UK.

It’s really that simple.

I personally would use the Brexit opportunity to do a massive rewrite of the UK economic model. Zero tariffs, fixed income tax (around 14%), higher consumption tax, zero corporate tax, etc.

We can ignore it.

The EU is the one pushing for a hard border. Not the UK not RoI.
 
And from that Washington post article:

If Germany had its own currency, it would be valued far higher than the euro. While the euro’s relatively low value is benefiting Germany’s export-driven economy, it has done little to revive southern Europe’s underperforming counterparts, which have also struggled under harsh austerity measures.
A well known economic reason why the Germans love the euro and not the Deutschmark

The Germans are exporting with their costs @ 30% undervalued
The Italians are exporting with their costs @ 30% overvalued

The Euro - Great 'one size fits all' success!
