It's an interesting story to follow but one which people do seem to be getting rather worked up about, I do agree with you on that point.

I can't see them voting in a way to disadvantage the exports of their own businesses, can you?

Re: Brexit discussion

If common sense and practical thinking was the EU way Old Boy there wouldn't be a brexit to be discussing always bet on ego and stupidity.

Zero tariffs does not mean an open border to the transport of goods. The only current way to get around the issue of rules of origin and compliance of regulatory standards is a customs union and single market respectively. We, as part of the EU have many zero tariff trade agreements but goods are still stopped at customs before entry in to the country, either virtually through declarations or physically.

On that subject, I see Daniel Hannan posted a nice photo of the exit to Basel airport to demonstrate how simple no customs union is - https://twitter.com/DanielJHannan/st...11751283740672

A bit 'pants on fire' with that photo, there are two exits to this airport, one in France and one in Switzerland. Leave by the wrong exit and you have to go through customs outside the airport even though Switzerland is in the Schengen Zone

It's a complicated subject and I don't blame Old Boy for not understanding it. Thanks for explaining matters so clearly, jonbxx.

I do understand it, Andrew. And we have to fix it. Things can be changed.
