When Boris Johnson blames his #COP26 failure on other countries, REMEMBER: He went to Glasgow with 150K pigs burning, faeces pouring into rivers, warming targets removed from Australia deal and as the only country on Earth to ever give up local trade for intercontinental trade.

I didn't vote for Brexit but it isn't hard to understand, leaving the EU does not mean we leave trading with the EU. In a Free Market Goods and Services can move freely between the Buyers and Sellers any obstruction to that trade is coming from government bureaucracy.

And I stated TIME AND TIME AGAIN that it's not about whether the UK trades with the EU or not. It's about the volume and value of that trade to the UK economy, and whether it becomes so expensive that small businesses are priced out while multinational corporations dominate.

Why would it become so expensive for small businesses to trade with the EU? Any expense will be coming from 🇪🇺 or 🇬🇧government regulations, permissions, approvals, etc. Given the economic situation for working people in Britain AND the EU countries, those rules need to be cut.

The EU has set rules (UK helped develope these rules) that apply to all 3rd countries, which includes the UK now. Small businesses lack the breadth of staff, and depth of financial reserves to handle the increased overheads of trade with EU as a 3rd country.

…did you read this before linking it? “The Bank of England said last year it expected a long-term reduction in trade with the EU. Some smaller businesses - especially those selling fresh produce such as seafood - face big regulatory hurdles.”

Anybody could sell their products to the 500 million in the EU. Even on ebay. So how wasn't it business friendly.
