You're fond of crap analogies. You can't go to the pub with your 2 mates and offer to buy one a pint.dr dre2 wrote:We dont have to charge anybody anything. or at least choose what gets protected.paddyor wrote:Eh, the ROW will be subject to the same tariffs as the EU unless theres a FTA.

The EU companies that rely on the UK market get shafted. The EU will price itself out of the UK at a greater level. We can buy from the ROW dirt cheap sans current EU tariff. They cant do that, they have to pay our tariff or another countries tariff regardless. So we remain competitive with ROW selling in the EU. ROW also gets to sell in to a $3tn stripped of EU competition.
Never mind how stupid it is to antagonize and start a trade war with the "biggest market" on the planet, non tariff barriers are a bigger problem for the UK (and the EU).
