Australia and New Zealand are not in anything like the EU and they're fine. Can the UK be the same?

    44% of their goods made in the UK are sold to EU countries and 55% of the things we import come from the EU.

    When compared to Australia who export around 7.8% of their goods to and just 18.3% of their total imports come from the EU.

    We trade with the EU because of it's close proximity to us and much of what we import is food, around 30% of our food comes from the EU. So without free trade this will all increase in price to the consumer.

    Then the price to EU countries of the food we produce and sell to them will increase with tarriffs. Meaning that these countries businesses will look to replace this produce from other EU countries, where it will cost less.

    We cant import or sell much of the food we produce further afield as the cost of transportation and much of what we grow is perishable.

    The UK needs to seriously grow a pair and stand on their own. They then need to channel the Dunkirk Spirit and send the darkies home.

    33% of Australian GDP is from exports to China.  China is a market almost comparable to the EU.  Australia's record breaking period without recession is entirely dependent on China.  Even the most myopic gammon agrees we at least were an important part of the EU policy making prior to our departure decision.  Australia has no say in China, China has a large say in Australia.  Be careful what you wish for gammons.

      Australia  has  trade  deals  with  not  ONLY  China  but  all of  Asia / America / Europe. China  has very little  say in what  actually  goes  on in Australia due its  very  robust  democracy  and having  multiple  allies  throughout the pacific  and  Asia.

    The EU is a backwards joke.  Did you know that they have to call sherry apera in Australia?  That's because EU wines are of inferior quality to Australian wines.

    Update:  Like all authoritarian wackos Cretin I has me blocked.  According to people like that opinions they disagree with are a threat to democracy.

    I remember before 1972 we were Fed by Au and NZ Australian Butter NZ lamb Australian beef Most of the Tropical Fruits from Australia today the Australians are willing to trade with the UK but only with trade deals so you cannot dump us again as you did in 1972 the Grass was Not greener in the EU

    You want Quality at good Prices Look at NZ AU and South Africa they Have 35% unemployed the Trading will be Great if the UK is fair

    the UK has never needed the EU

    and the EU just steal from the UK

    Recently the German Finance minister said when the UK leaves the EU Germany will Cut spending on rebuilding Eastern Germany by 60 % when did we Approve that amount of Money we did Not Brussels did

    we will not be dictated to and have our membership money misappropriated

    Yes, of course we can and the left wing sheep would realise that if they weren't so stupid. If they can survive on their own way can't we?
