What will happen when the UK leaves the EU
« on: January 07, 2019, 06:41:09 PM »
Brexit is Brexit, and that is what we voted for. Anything else is just a shade of remain. It looks as if the UK is going to take the only viable route to leave, and that is a true Brexit. So what will happen when Britain switches to WTO rules? Well Britain is a member of the WTO in it's own right, and their subscription is paid up to date. The EU is also a member, and it trades with much of the world under WTO rules. When the UK leaves the EU, it will start to trade with the EU under WTO rules. This is automatic, and it is how the system works. The rules also state that the EU has to trade on the same terms as it trades with other non-EU countries.

So the truth is that Britain will continue to trade with the EU, and there will be no disruption. Customs processing will be performed in the same way that Britain checks most of its trade at the moment. Most of its trading is outside the EU anyway.

I've been looking into world treaties and the seems to be some common ground between us and eu countries.

I think france and egypt were peers at some point or france took over egypt and offered the uk the same rights as french people there (obviously with something in return).
Therefore if france deemed it necessary to deal with us, they could deem that items came from egypt (and such may be liable to less duty by the EU and more duty by them - France making it a gain for France).

There are other areas like gibralter that could come in useful as well as other terratories the UK technically has freedom in.

It looks as if we are going to have a watered down version of Theresa May's fake Brexit. The banker Johnson is not going to stop EU super-fishing in our waters, and he will carry on paying the EU leeches with no benefit to the UK. It's rubbish to say that Britain needs to negotiate financial access to the EU, as the EU can't survive without London, and it needs to negotiate access to the British financial markets, not the reverse.
