That was a rhetorical question - so please don't answer. Like any political discussion the truth is not welcome. I understand that the Brexit discussion is now turning to trade terms. We wish for no tariffs, but fear the EU will impose them on us. My thought is let them ask for tariffs of any size they want. And we will then charge the same tariffs to them in turn. The Office of National Statistics says that we import 25% more from the EU than they do from us. This means that our government will raise £125 in customs duty for every £100 that the UK will have to pay in EU taxes. I suggest that the government spends £100 of this £125 on paying the EU taxes on our exports. Thus our export prices will not be effected as the government and not the company will have paid the duty, however the £25 left over will be a profit to the UK government. EU exporters will suffer because they will have to pay our import duties. So the higher the tariff rates the more money the UK will make, and the more the EU exporters will suffer. Now I know that it means that the cost of imported goods into the UK will rise. But isn't that a good way to stimulate the British economy to make more goods. Governments always try to devalue their currencies to reduce imports and make exports cheaper. Surely this will do exactly the same. And we will be making a profit from the EU at the same time. So why not let the EU set whatever tariffs they want. They will only be damaging their exporters and economy, and making a net transfer of money to the UK.
