Except that it would probably be illegal in that they don't apply the same restrictions on other trading nations outside the EU.
Yes. the question is incorrect.
Following a no-deal Brexit, the UK will be able to trade with the EU on the same terms as other countries who have no trade deal with the EU.
The question only arises if we wish to enter a trade deal with the EU. Only then are they able to put conditions in play.

So well known, that no hunt knows what her actual job is supposed to be :D:D
On BBC1 now being interviewed. Says she can't follow the party whip. Happy to return to back benches. Was skills and apprenticeships minister. Not an out and out remainer apparently though she did vote remain in the end. Her main concern was leaving without a deal.

The BBC's Assistant Political Editor Norman Smith has just said the contenders will be told just before they go on stage what the results are.

He says it is just possible that there is a "tortoise and hare" style upset, in which Jeremy Hunt could win.

He describes the scene outside the conference centre in the "Scorchio" weather as the "Plaza del Chaos".
Straws grasping.
All the channel ferries will be overflowing.
Now we know who the PM is, what will his cabinet be?
Going to be some dangerous people who hate Boris on the back benches!
It’ll be interesting to see the medium-term reaction of the stock market.

There was for TM no longer PM.
