Re: Brexit....or in.

Yes I've digested what you've written. And as usual gotten very tired of the usual RTT-can-never-be-wrong attitude. I note how you nicely dodged the comment about 70% of our trade coming through EU and EU negotiated trade deals.... Which is exactly why trade deals are important in the context of Bre...

Re: Brexit....or in.

We can publish the WTO tariffs, yes. But if you look at what I wrote, you'd see that I stated we can't negotiate tariffs with specific countries; so when you say we can reduce tariffs.... Well we can't. We can have the WTO tariffs, and once we've left the EU we can negotiate fresh tariffs that migh...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Finally, Jeremy Corbyn grows a pair and calls a vote of no confidence, though noticeably the DUP aren't in the undersigned.....

Debated tomorrow.

All a bit late given that a general election can't be scheduled until after we leave the EU...

Re: Brexit....or in.

But aren't allowed to do that under WTO rules until an agreement is made between both parties involved. Which we aren't allowed to negotiate until we leave the EU. :shrug: And by reducing tariffs on imports you fail to counter the increase in tariffs on exports anyway. So your currency is devalued, ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

The problen is there will be a delay before the should can be activated. I think its a bigger unknown than what will happen in the event of a no deal exit. A weakened pound impacts our imports and contributes to inflation, further increasing the chances of recession, especially in real terms for the...
