The No Deal Scaremongering

Vernon Coleman

The ‘no deal’ scare mongering that is going on largely centres on the threat that if we leave the EU without handing over our money and our sovereignty then we will not have any Mars bars or medicines.

This is bollocks.

As the editor of the journal Shipping – Today and Yesterday points out in an editorial: ‘The volume of goods imported into the UK, particularly from the Far East, is huge and commercially warrants these large container ships delivering directly to us. Once we are out of the EU and can negotiate new trade agreements with countries such as Canada, India and the South American nations, there could be an upturn in exports which will make our economy stronger. So, stop the scaremongering and let’s get on with new and exciting trade agreements without the EU’s red tape and self-interest.’
