The only reason that 44% of our trade is with the EU is because we are locked into it by EU trade agreements and the customs union. it makes no sense to go outside the EU looking for a cheaper supplier if a 40% EU tariff is going to be slapped on top of the negoriated price.

I would venture that trade will drop to less than 18% once we have the freedom to shop elsewhere.

Like a shop loyalty card, the deals look fantastic before you get locked into the system. Not quite so good when you check the prices on the Internet. Shop price for a typical computer game, 40. Discount with a loyalty card brings the price down to 35. Bargain!

Internet price 10, free delivery within two to three days.

That is our current position with respect to the EU.
