Re: Brexit....or in.

Meanwhile, and somewhat unsurprisingly, the EU declines to reopen talks after the UK has shown it's hand last night that we don't want to leave without a deal. What a shock. Who knew our politicians were idiots? And the EU ones too. Neither side has shown a duty of care to their citizens. It could ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Personal jibes? Where, exactly? Oh wait, no I did point out, again, that you approach every argument, ever, with the firm belief that it's impossible for you to ever be wrong, ever. Did I say ever enough? I'm not quite sure. The only misconception would be around any doubt over what the trade tarif...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I think, on that note, it's probably best to just cease talking.... You should have done that several posts ago, instead of exposing just how little you actually know about all this. You've based your arguments on spurious unchecked claims that agricultural exports exceed imports, beef is exported ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I'm sorry? Have you actually read my post? It's not about objections to our WTO schedules, it's that they have already been set out as the same as the EU schedules..... so all those arguments you put forward about changing the tariffs to suit our needs aren't included in the schedules that we've al...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Yes, cause all that really matters is people going across the channel and purchasing booze for their own consumption..... They key part is:- "These goods may be either of UK origin, received following an intra EU movement or imported from outside the EU. The duty falls due at the time when the good...

Re: Brexit....or in.

And on the previous indicators with no disasters; you're struggling with the difference between an indicator based on speculation and an actual devaluation of currency and actual increase in product cost: which also was my argument right at the start which you dismissed. The reason why there was no...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Oh and lastly, in order to post a WTO schedule, there needs to be no objections from any other WTO member. This also takes three months minimum before they are approved in order to give all WTO members time to review them. So, on March 29th, given the UK has no schedules because we trade under the ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

We have import duty on wine, (aka tariff), imported from the EU. I can send you my bills from HMRC if you like? https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-trade-tariff-excise-duties-reliefs-drawbacks-and-allowances/uk-trade-tariff-excise-duties-reliefs-drawbacks-and-allowances#introduction Why h...

Re: Brexit....or in.

There simply is no English wine produced at that cost. Yep, that was pretty much the gist of my point. Therefore we have to import, and at £3bn a year coming in, that's some hefty demand for wine even if we won't starve without it. You think people will stop drinking wine when we leave the EU? I wa...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Agricultural exports in 2017 were £22bn, imports were £46.2bn. Not sure how I'd reword that sentence to make it clearer I meant agricultural exports rather than just beef, but apology accepted. :) Some other interesting tidbits from that report - pigmeat prices rocketed up by 21% in 2017, with dema...
