In response to John Redwood: The EU couldn’t blockade us even if it wanted to, Flamingo wrote:
It’s amazing how businesses manage to complete trade with the USA, which is neither a member of the EU and with which the EU has no trade deal.
We do more trade with non-EU countries than EU countries, and it works just fine. Non-EU is on the increase, whilst EU trade is reducing. I wonder why? Even if we remained, more and more trade would be conducted with non-EU countries, which may, or may not, have a trade deal with the EU.
Of course, if the EU wants to make trading with the UK really difficult, then we take our trade elsewhere and the EU lose their huge trading surplus. There are more countries outside the EU than within it.
